Mississippi’s Capitol getting specialized facelift » Mississippi Business JournalMississippi Business Journal
The Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) wants to insure that the restoration maintains the original design whenever possible and that the project conforms to the historic nature of the building. Newman has spent long hours researching the architectural and structural components of the Capitol and is working closely with MDAH to enlist the best resources from across the country. Brenda Davis, State Capitol curator, said the department has gone to great lengths to be sure all subcontractors were qualified to work on the project and that they specialize in historic preservation. The projects general contractor is Johnson Construction, founded in Mississippi in 1968. It supervised the recent restoration of the Old Capitol Museum building on State Street. Davis said three of the firms involved in the project are nationally known for their work on historic buildings. The Guilders Studio of Olney, Md., has completed work on the Washington Monument and the Georgia State Capitol Dome and will be re-gilding the eagle; Robinson Iron of Alexander City, Ala., has worked on large projects such as Grand Central Station in New York City and will oversee the metal restoration, including the cast bronze exterior light fixtures and door surrounds and the copper globe lights; Boston Valley Terra Cotta, an Orchard Park, N.Y., company in business since 1889 , is an industry leader in historic terra cotta fabrication. Mississippi-based Pearl River Stained Glass Studio will oversee the delicate repairs to the Capitols stained glass windows. The Capitol has been the home of the Legislature since 1903. It was built on the site of the old state penitentiary. Not only is the Capitol building designated a Mississippi landmark, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
