Governor's Reception Area
Second Floor West Wing

This room served as the first office of the first Governor in the new Capitol Building in 1910.   All the furniture pieces are constructed of antique mahogany, and are part of a matching set. This was the first room to undergo restoration. The light fixtures in the Reception Area are original. Most of the furniture in this room is the original furniture from 1910, which includes:

The large desk and large chair behind the desk

The large conference table and chairs

The sofa-like furniture in the NE corner area of the room

The gold designs on the walls and ceiling (above) are a gold plaster relief.

The dark green carpet border symbolizes the size of the original area rug which was laid in the center of the room.
