Old Capitol was the first permanent seat of Iowa's territorial and state governments. Built in the early 1840's, it was used by Iowa's lawmakers and government officials until 1857, when westward expansion drew the state government to Des Moines. Old Capitol was then given to the University of Iowa and became the first building owned by the University.
