SALT LAKE CITY – Construction on the Utah State Capitol began 100 years ago last month and the Capitol Preservation Board is commemorating the event.

The board has opened a new visitor center that holds a collection of photographs of the planning and construction of the building.

“Everything from the first attempted statehouse in Fillmore to the workers here on the grounds, and everything that they did to lend a hand to this project,” said Sara Howard, manager for public relations and visitor services.

The free exhibit is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
