Become a Friend

The Friends of the Old State Capitol are responsible for lobbying state and local officials to restore this National Historic Landmark. The Friends of the Old State Capitol provide volunteers and docents to assist the 60,000+ people who visit the building each year.

The Friends contribute their time, talent and treasure to support the Old State Capitol. They have funded major projects such as a multi-language audio tour and funding for traveling exhibits.
