Title: Wisconsin State Capitol (Third)
Description: The Third Wisconsin State Capitol before the completion of the dome. After all four wings of the Third Capitol were completed, the second Capitol was demolished and the central portion of the third constructed over its foundations to connect the wings. A disagreement over the plan for the dome designed by August Kutzboch and Samuel H. Donnel halted construction and left the new building topless. The dome was finally constructed in 1869 with a new classical design by Stephen V. Shipman. Local tradition has it that the rejection of his design may have contributed to Kutzbock's suicide in 1868.
