All historical publications are reproduced here with the actual spelling, punctuation, and grammar retained THIS WEEK: Iowa State Capitol Furniture Past and Present Although most of the original furniture for the Capitol was ordered from established manufacturers and retail furniture stores, there were some pieces designed for specific areas of the building. These pieces were built on-site in a small wooden building erected directly west of the Capitol. Some of these remarkable pieces of furniture were subsequently dismantled and destroyed. Some of the pieces remain in the building as a reminder of the amazing craftsmanship associated with the original woodworkers for the Iowa State Capitol.
