142 STATE CAPITOLS

142 STATE CAPITOLS Single Dome Territorial Capitol, 1900-1950 Photo Courtesy: Museum of New Mexico, Negative 51280, ca. 1903 SINGLE DOME TERRITORIAL CAPITOL In 1895, The Territorial Legislature approved a capitol rebuilding board to supervise the construction of a new building. Due to a money shortage however, it was three years before construction began. Every effort was made to cut costs in construction. Stone that could be salvaged from the old structure were cleaned and used again. Special rates were obtained by the railroads, newspapers were asked to reduce the cost of advertising public bids, and free labor was brought in from the state penitentiary. Records indicated that the rebuilding board was upset when a blacksmith was pardoned from jail because that meant they would have to pay a citizen $3.00 a day to replace him. The three story, silver-domed building was completed on June 4, 1900 for the incredibly low cost of $140,000. Territorial-Style Capitol, 1950-1966 Photo Courtesy: Museum of New Mexico, Negative 56411, ca. 1953 TERRITORIAL-STYLE CAPITOL Originally the capitol completed in 1900 was like most other state capitols, a miniature version of the United States Capitol with steep steps that rose to an entry held aloft by six fluted columns, a deep foyer, and a large dome. It was designed this way, in part, to convince others that the territory was worth of statehood; an honor bestowed upon it in 1912. Between the time the capitol was dedicated and New Mexico became a state, the Territorial Legislative Assembly authorized construction of several annexes to the capitol, as well as the governor's mansion, on the same property. In 1922, the cornerstone was laid for a wing facing Don Gaspar Street. In 1938, the Supreme Court building was constructed east of the state house with New Deal funding. However, during the 1950's, Santa Feans had become increasingly proud of their native pueblo and territorial architecture and the capitol had become unfashionable. To be distinctly Santa Fe, the silver dome came off and the yellow brick executive mansion, with its gardens and white columns was torn down. The project to "Santa Fe-ize" the capitol building was complete in 1953.

THE ROUNDHOUSE By the 1960's the government had outgrown its quarters and the 1963 legislature approved funds for construction of a new building to house the executive and legislative branches. It was designed by W.C. Kruger and constructed by Robert E. McKee. It is an adaptation of the Greek revival period to the Pueblo Indian adobe architecture and modified to form the Zia Indian Sun Symbol that appears on the state flag. Construction completed in 1966. The Roundhouse, East view, 1966-Present In 1992, the first of two major renovations to the capitol was completed. It included removal of asbestos and mechanical and electrical renovations. It created larger committee rooms for greater public participation, and brought the building up to date on safety and handicap requirements. January 2000 marked the completion of the second major renovation to the Roundhouse. It converted the old State Library into the new State North Annex. Redesigned to resemble the architecture of the Roundhouse, it includes a mini-rotunda with a large bronze fountain in the center. A long hallway, brightened by a row of skylights, connected the two buildings and an interesting collection of original fine art is displayed throughout this hallway or passageway. The new Capitol North Annex building houses several legislators, the Secretary of State's Office, the Office of the Legislative Finance Committee and the Legislative Education Study Committee. Other displays for public information, include plaques designating senators; commemorating women who have served in the New Mexico State Senate. Photographs in both legislative houses identify the pictures of the legislators who have served New Mexico since statehood. A bronze plaque can also be found on the first floor that memorializes the men who served in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in New Mexico during the 1930's and early 1940's. Flags from the 33 counties of the state, hang over the Rotunda. Fine art exhibits are rotated throughout the year in the lobby of the building and busts of former governors can also be seen on the west entry area of the building. On the grounds around the building, bronze sculptures done by New Mexico artists can be found. An additional life size bronze statue located on the west side of the capitol honors the work of a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Worker. It faces the Bataan Memorial Eternal Flame structure located just across the street and was the 54th CCC statue to be placed in the nation. More expansion required the creation of the Capitol South complex on South St. Francis Drive with three buildings built to house Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Dept., General Services Dept, and Taxation and Revenue Dept. and Capitol West Complex which houses the State Records and Archives and State Library. Some of these buildings have been named to honor former NM statehood governors. 143
