Chaptered Memorials

The Historic State Capitol Commission has been charged with advisory review of the maintenance, restoration, development and management of the Historic State Capitol. As such, it takes its active stewardship seriously. It has long been the opinion that Capitol Park requires a master plan to protect and maintain it in the manner in which it was originally intended. The proliferation of memorials placed in Capitol Park has detracted from its wide green spaces and the park is in jeopardy of becoming a cemetery of monuments. In order to assist both the Joint Committee on Rules and the Department of General Services in tracking memorials in the State Capitol Building and/or Capitol Park, the Commission maintains a list of current and past Chaptered Memorials. The list has proven helpful when new memorials are proposed.
