The Capitol Furnishings Preservation Committee was formed in 1999 by statute “to promote and encourage the recovery and preservation of the original and historic furnishings of the state capitol group” as envisioned by architects Wilder and White. The Capitol Group includes the Legislative Building, the Insurance Building, the Temple of Justice, John A. Cherberg Building, John L. O’Brien Building and the Irving Newhouse Building.
