June 2012 TruthToTell Archives

The Capitol is essentially a hand-built work of art. Every stone had to be moved by horse-drawn, teamster-guided wagon from railroad cars 90 vertical feet through downtown up to the Capitol site. Every single stone was worked by hand…every external marble piece subtly sloped to shed water, so to keep the relatively weather-prone stone lasting as long as it has (though time- and weather-inflicted damage to much of it requires repair and restoration.) (Editor: this critical renovation will be discussed as well.) TTT’s ANDY DRISCOLL talks with a descendant of a key worker, a Capitol steward and labor historians to talk about the amazing history of Minnesota’s Capitol Building.
