FLEENOR State Superintendent of Construction. This page in the original text is blank. Kentucky's New State Capitol And Its Construction BY C. M. FLEENOR STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF CONSTRUCTION T H E ffi.;t acttiuil stel toward the ereetiou ot tile new ('apitol was taken bv the V194 (General As- sebnIl)v, whkiet-i convened in tile old Ionic porti oedl State House in Northl Frankfort. This Isxoh appropriated 1,000,W0) for theat puirpose and constituted a State Capitol Building Commuission out of the Sinking Fund (Collmlissioners of the State, who were, under the existing laws, the five chief elective State offieials, namelv: The (lovernor, J. C. W. Beckhami; the Auditor, S. W. Hager; the Secretary of State, 11. V. Mc(ithesney; tihe Treasurer, 1I. Mt. Bosworthi; and the Attorney Gen- erul, N. B. Hays. T HE need of new quarters for the State G(overlnment had belen long felt. The old State House, which was erected in 1827-9 ut a cost of 85,0(X), was considered a fine building in its time und ecommodious enough to house all State departments. In 1869 it was regarded as out- grown, and the State began the erection of another build- in-, to thke its I)lace, 100,00M) being a)pprop)riated for the work. This amount conimleted time east wing of the new building only, and no subsequent ahpproIpriations were ever nviude. In conseqluenee the State (Government was housed in two buildings and an old brick annex until the year 1909 wheen tIme present new Capitol building was completed. 11 RIVALRY between Louisville and Lexington for the R! location of the Capitol, both seeking to take it away from Frankfort, was responsible for the long de- lay in the matter of a new Capitol, but this was definitely settled, however by tbe new Constitution framed in 1891 which located the seat of government permanently at Frankfort and the Legislature of 1904 brought the movement to a culmination by the million dollar appropriation. F OlT)LWIXG tlme adjournment of the 1904 Legislature the Board of State Capitol Commissioners imet and elected If. B. Ware, of Frankfort, secretary, and appoint- ed a meeting at which time it wvould elect its superinteiid- ent and cmnsider the question of tlme selection of an arechi- teet. In view of the fact that the hoard was inexleri- enced in the teelnics of building, especially in suhli work as would enter into time construction of a State l'Cm1itol, it was deenied the wiser plan to select a sutperintenident in advanee, one experienced in architecture, or an nrclii- ted by profession. that his first duties might lie those of an advisor to tlme board to assist in the better lhandling of the matter of the selection of an architect and other preliminary work. At its next meeting, April 7, 1904, C. M. Fleenor, of Bowling Green, Ky., was elected sulerin- tendent of construction for the State. On June 10, 1904 Frank 3l. Andrews, of Dayton, Ohio, was elected arelii- teet. Then followed several months' consideration of the State's needs and the most suitable plans adapted to them; style, finish and arrangements, each coining in for its share. The location of the new building came up for consideration with the other matters and time need of a new site was made manifest. I N January of 1905 a sleeial session of the Legislature was called to consider this question and a site on the south side of Frankfort was selected and an apj)ro- priation of 40,000 was niade for its purchase and prep- aination for the new building. 12 TllHE preliminary work of clearing and excavatinlg for the site was begun on May 25, 1905. On AuguA 10 the general contract for the construction of the lmuilding was let and the work on time excavation for the foundation was begun four days later (Aug- ust 14, 1905). The general contract was for 0,000, and the time for the completion of the work was twenty-four monthls from the dite of time signing of tile contract. This time limit, however, was extended, iirst, by forty-five days, by reason of extra work found mecessarv to be done in excavation and on foundation le-- cause of rock boul-iers -neountered and treacherous clays found lying Ibetween them whiceh were considered too dangerous to risk the foundation walls upon. 0 TI[EI extensions of time wv-ere mimade to cover ad- ditional contracts entered into -and whil womuld liive to be -onmnplettd along with the original e-ntract. tile TLegis;atitre of 1906 having al)ppro)riated 250.Off0 ad. ditionnld to the million dollar appropriation madle in 1904, the .dl(lditiolnal appropriation to cover the cost of a ehangre in tIme interior finigih of the building fromn Bedford lime sLone to Georgia marble, and for a terra eotta roofing for tlme donme instead of the copper of the first contral, amid al.so for the enrikhmment of the pediment of the front pavillion with riehly carved allegorical figures. ('on- tracts for the extra work were let in June, 1906, the oring- inal eontra:-ting finn securing the contract for the new marl)le and terra cotta work, and (Charles 11. Nielhaus. sculptor of New York City, being selected for time work to be done on the pediment. XN tihe year 1907 munch work was done upon the build- ing, but it was by no means completed on the date designated in the original comtract. l)elays of mm:imy kinds arising so that the building at the time of this change of time State administrations, January, 10, was scarcely then completely under roof, while little of the finishing work of time interior had been done at all. 13 B EGINNING with the year of 1908 a new administra- tion took over the affairs of the State, and, with other things, the active eharge of the work of t1le Capitol building under construction. The Building Commission being, as before st'tted, coml)osed of the members of time State Sinking Fund Commission, who, under the Consti- tution, were the five chief officials of the State, Governor Augustus E. Wilison, therefore, became clhairman of the ('apitol Building ('omumission. and l-n L. Bruner, Seere- tarv of State; Frank P. James, Auditor; James Breath- itt, Attornev General; and Edwin Farlev, S1tate Treasur- cr, the other nmeumbers of the official 'Mard. Mr. Fleenor, superintendent under the appointment of time first board. was requested to continue in office by the new board, and on the first of April, 1908, Capt. Edward M1. Drane was appointed to succeed H. B. Ware, who had served as see- retary with ahility and fidelity from the first organiza- tion of the board in March of 1904. The firm of F. M. An- drews Co., arehitects, was retained, and the work on the building proceeded without interruption. THE Legislature of 1908 appropriated an additionai 460,000 for carrying on the work, the appropria- tion being divided as follows: For furniture, floor cov- e-ing, etc., 150,000; for electric light fixtures, 30,000; for metal file cases, 75,000; for architectural terraxe and landscape work, 115.000; for power plant and its equip- nhent, 90,000. UT DER a latitudinal Interpretation of "floor eover- ings, ete.," a numuer of contracts were let for things quite material for the completion of the building, but not specifically mentioned in the wording of the amp- propriation, and these were paid for out of the surplus left from the amount appropriated for those purposes which were specifically mentioned. One of the incomplete parts found under the general contraet for the construe- tion of the building was the cement floors of halls and corridors. It was never the intention to have onythin- 14 eise than warble floors. Imt tile limited alplprolpriation first made and tnder which floors properly came, fixed thleui "cementt" for the time being. Believing, however, that thcn furniture and floor covering approlprittion was more than ample for all purposes unider these hleads, the cohi0111iss)on awarded a contract for the omitted marble floors early in tile year 1908. setting aside therefor 22,- SWflN out of tile "furniture and floor coveringg" appropria- tionl of 150,000. IN January of 1'M the coatract for tile furniture was let for 63,500, Nhiiieh included not only tIme movable furniture but sectional bookeases and Venetian blinds as well. The archliteetural finish (counters, railing, wiain scotings, etc..) was also contractud for under tile head of "furniture appropriation,'' as were certainl deeora- tioIIs. mural paintinms anid the 'like. Thle contract l)rice for the architectural finish was 11,386. Tlme interior decorationis of the offices, corridors, et:-., cost 14,314. The decorations :ind furniture in the State Reception iRoonm ost 9.,380. The miural paintings over the doors of the House and Semenite ehainmers co)st 7,000. The cbrlpet., rugns. linoleuimis. etv., throll'-inolit tile building, except those in tile State Reception Room, cost 13,501. Ti.ese several ecolitracts, with a few iminor cines, were all placed under the "furniture and floor covering" 'head. along withi the 22,800 for the marble floors, and were paid for out of the 150,000 alplprolpriated. T EIE electric li-ght fixtures of thme biuilding were sup- plied at a cost of 29,604. The State Treasurer's vault and all t1me other vaults and safes in time building, were instlled at a, cost of 1,850, which was eliarged to the file case appropriation. The file eases, proper, and tile bookstacks of tile library, cost tile State 37,333. The mietal screen contract of 3,00) was charged to the 75,- 000 file ease appropriation; all eontracts under that hlead aniouinting to 49,500. Some 25,000 of the Wlance was ex'pended on tile landscape work of tile grommnds. 15 THE airelitectural terrace around the building cost 72,922 whielh came out of the terrace and land seaping appropriation of 115,000. The balance of this appropriation was expended in the purchase of g-round for tie 'approaelhes and for the landscape work itself. The work on 'the grounds is being done by day labor. T HE power house and its equilpment, for whivh 90,000 was appropriated, cost 8,.3.6 and the installation of the heating, lifhting -and ventilating work cost 79,- 099, this latter amount coming out of the origrinn' million dollar appropriation. IT WILL be seen from the foregoing that the total appropriation for the Capitol building proper was 1,250,000; for its furnishing and outfittini. 255.Y)'0: for the power plant and its equipment, 90,000; for the architectural terrace and landscape work of the grounids, 115,000, and for the grounds themselves, 40,000; making a total of 1,750,000. The building itself ae- tuallv cost a little less than 1,200,000, when we de- duct the architeet's commission and the rest of the work pertaining thereto-including Power Plant, archi te tural terrace and architeet's eonunission4-to some .97,000, or the whole, including architects commis- sions on all the work, totaling 1,645,000. Altogether some 100,000 has been expended in the purcltase of tie giounds for tie site and tie work done thereon. This in a large measure makes up the rest of the 1,750,000. CROWNING a gently rising hill in South Frankfort, C with the beautiful Kentueck river winding throu!ghi undulating lowlands at its base, the new ('apitol stands a monument 'to a progressive Commonwealth and to its designers and builders. When the grand alpproac-h and landscape work has been completed, the building and its environs will have few peers among State Capitols. TIHE building is of the French renaissance architec ture with the neoclassie feature of the dome, which characterizes the general designs of State Capitols. In 16 size it is 402 feet and 10 inches east and west, and 180 feet through central pavillion north and south, these figures being exclusive of the terrace walls which add some thirty or forty feet each way. It shows three stories in the treatment of its elevations and is finished with parapet walls which give the appearance of a clere-story, and which do accommodate an attic or fourth floor, which is used for fan rooms, storage, and the House and Senate balconies. The center pavilions rise some five feet above the parapet wnlils of waists and ends, and above them is the base, and then the true p)odium of the dome. From terrace walk to top of center pavillion is 80 feet; to lan- tern on top of dome, 210 feet. T HE base of the exterior of the building is of Vermont granite; the rest of the face -work, inaluding thie dome, is of Bedford lime stone. The first story is of rusticated work laid up in huge blocks. Through the second and third floors run the seventy large monolithic columns which surround the entire building, the rear and end fawades being treated the same as in front. The columns are Ionic in design, and the entablature above, and the treatment of other features of the building, con- form to them. The dome is treated in like manner, ex- cept that the twenty-four encircling columns are in see- lions instead of being monolithic. In the matter of its mono'ithic columns this building stands alone among State Capitols, and the beauty of the feature can be fully apl)reciated when one hals compared these columns with the sectional or drum columns of other buildings. In the enrichment of the tympanum of the front pediment this building is also in the lead of other State Capitols, and it is a question whether there is a richer sculptured pedi- ment in the entire country. The conception and its exe- cution is simply magnificent and will serve to foster and quicken art in Kentucky. Much credit is due the skillful carver, Mr. Peter Rossak, a young seulptor recently from Austria, whose apt interpretation of the models lent much to the design in bringing out the salient points. 17 T HE stone terrace, recently finisbed, is the real setting of the building without whiili i4 were inoinplete. andl this again will be aveentiated by the granid approaelc to be constructed, and the proper iandsiape work to be done on the grounds. From any point, thien. the tCalpitol will be a finished product from without, withi few rivals in the land. BY' reason of the liberalitv of the 19016 Le-islature which ma de possible tie hliandsome pediment, oni oley wws also a-pprop)riated for an extra in the interior finish of the building, namely, the changing of the finishi of the corridors. nave, etc., from Bedford stone to Gieorgia marble and Vermont granite. An appreviation of this will be felt at once when one enters the building. The outer vestiI)ules are of Bedford stone, the interior workl of marble. The differene is marked and it gives ri.ch- ness and tone to the general treatment. TlIE: corridors, stairways, rotunda and naves, are features withe whichl few State (Ow)itols can eom- pare and none surpass. So far as the mean s were at hand the finishi has been unstinted. It shows refiemeneat and it displays taste, a taste t'halt will lead to better thliings in the public buildings of the State. THE first floor is for general offiees and file roo:ns. The setcoroi1 floor is taken up with the exeentive of- fices and those of the higlier State officials. Thil, ('ourt of Appeals elnmnbler is in the. east end, in the south psa- v-ilion is the Library, in the west end is the Board room, While most prominently in front is the State lcveption Room. These several rooms are especially designed and riehly furnished in quiet but elegant taste. THE ('0 art of Appeals cliamber is considered by many tif lhandsomaest room in the building. It is paneled in solid mahogany to the ceiling with pilasters support- ing the massive girders which span the room and which siTPlport Hime floors above. The judges' stand and the l)alustrade sepail-tting the eourt from the speetators' is benches, are likewise of solid mahogany, richly earved, with bases of Vertle Antique mnarble. Time ceiling is of O ld l)uteh Mfetal." haninered effeet, and paneled with egg and dart mould enrichment. Time carpet is of deep. tufted "'smxolln" of a riel, moss-green eolor, rand time furniture mxithogany upholstered in gennine hand-huffed, olive-green leather. The fixtures are of genuine mronze and of rivh design. hmarnionizing splendidly with tile other fuimlisilings of the room. As a whole, time room is verv fine and rihll in design and finish, anti was fitted out at a cost appq roxiamating 10,000. T THE stickler of "styles" and the lover of time "Francaise," the State Reception Room will per- 011a)s make the strongest app)eal, as it is decorated and furnislwd after the period of Louis XIV. It cost nearly S10.00() to fit out this chamber, which is tIme "'parlor" of the Capitol and intended for dignified occasions of state. Time walls are canvased and hand-painted with reprodue- tions of famous French seenes about the roval eitv of Versailles. Cornice and ceiling are brought out in lhar- monv, and tIme Imardwood floor is covered by a one-piece rug, 16f'lx55 feet, French "Ellane" quality and make, especially designed and woven to match the colors and finish of time clianiber. Tile I-rge French windows are draped withi costly lace and Imung with damask portieres of color and shade to harmonize with tile otimer fittings. Time chairs, ibeneles and sofas are of rielil- earved Cireas- sian walnut, upholstered witim velvet of tile finest quality to match the d3mask portieres. Time center table is of the same materi' and finish as tile clhairs and sofas. blt riell- er still in carving and eovered with a genuine Brecihe Vio- lette marble top. Tue handsome old gold fixtures with their thousands of swinging prismns comlplete tile effect, wimicl is one of magnificence and grandeur. r IF, other rooms and offices of tile seponid floor. wihile not so rich and pronouneed in their effeet as those described, are, nevertheless, finished hlandsomely and sub- stAntiallv. Mlahmogan is tile finish thlrougiloult on this 19 floor, with mahogany furniture upholstered in genuine hand-buffer leather, the color of the upholstery matching the respective rooms. The walls of the executive offices are covered with velvet and the floors with imported Aus- trian Axminster rugs. Other walls are covered with buckram, while in the nave and corridors they are can- vassed and painted "burnt orange" in the general scheme of the later decorative work to be done. THE two lunettes of the nave are very handsome and striking and represent events intimately connected with Kentucky's history. The one in the east wing, over the entrance to the House ehanxber, depicts Daniel Boone and his companions upon the hank of the Kentucky river scanning the beiutiful valleys below; the one in the west end over the entrance to the Senate chamber, shows the artist's conception of the first convention of the white man with the Indian-Henderson and Boone negotiating with Oeon-os-to-to, chief of the Cherokees, for the "I )ark and Bloody Ground." oN the third floor are the house and Senate elambers and the committee rooms of the Legislature. The Youse chamber is of Romanesque design with pl)opei3n red color scheme finish. The Senate chamber is more modern in design, with Sienna columns and bases. Both chambers are finished with the columns Seagliola-the only imitations within the building. These chambers, how- ever, are furnished in mahogany and provided with the richest and most substantial furniture of the same mate- rial, upholstered in leather. The retiring and reception rooms of House and Senate are handsome, complete and comfortable in their luxury. T HE nave deserves special mention on account of its generous length and breadth and the thirtyv-six great monoalithic columns supporting its massive cornices. On every hand words of admiration have been lavished upon this feature of the Capitol, for in this respect it stands superior to other State Capitols. 20 NOT only is this great marble nave a thing of beauty and magnificence, but it gives light and ventilation to second and third floors of the building, and is the in- closed area into which all departments can empty them- selves with ease. The columns are of Vermont granite, the stairs, pilasters and cornices Georgia marble, and the floors of Tennessee and Italian marbles bordered with Verde antique. THE furniture throughout is designed especially for this building, as are the handsome fixtures and hardware, the latter bearing on every piece the seal of the State. In fact, everything was designed to an end, that end being a complete structure unified in all its parts. That it has achieved the end aimed at, no one, I think, will deny. T HE heating and ventilation of the building is com- plete, and constructed after the most approved and scientific, modern methods. The thermal chambers with their heating coils, and the distributing fans, are in the bl sement; the fresh air inta.kc.s in the roof. The fresh air is drawn in, 'thoroughly cleansed by washing, then passes to the thermal chambers to be heated and blown to the larger rooms, halls and corridors throughout the building, whence the foul or exhausted air is drawn by exhaust fins up through the attic and forced out at vents in the roof of the building. In some of the smaller rooms and corridors the wvarm blasts from the thermal rooms are augmented by direct radiation when the conditions re- quire such additional heat. The whole system is governed automatimilly and the temperature regulated in eadh room by a thermostat Cold, fresh and filtered water runs from many drinking founts, While a master clock furnishes itime and regulation for all important offices and rcoms. The vacuum-system of cletaning is also installed as one among the many conveniences as well as every other modern improvement for an up-to-date building of this kind. 21 THE power plant is situated on the bluff of the Ken- tecky river some six hundred feet from the Capitol building and is reached through a tunnel leading from the sub-basement. Through this tunnel all heat, light and power for operating the ventilating and vacuum systems are conveyed, and there is no fire whatever within the building itself. The system is efficient and complete and the work up-to-date in every respect, and reflects -great credit upon the engineers and contractors. In the test whieh was given the plant by engineering experts, it was pronounced one of the best in the country and capable of running indefinitely at a full load, something like a third more than the actual requirements of the Capitol building. I FEEL that it would not be fair to close this brief sketch without mention of some of the real workers upon this grand building who have hitherto stood in the background modestly enough. I refer to H. E. Kennedy, a former partner of F. M. Andrews Co., while that firm biad its headquarters in Cincinnati, and to George E. Matthews, a member of this same firm, but now located in New York. Mr. Matthews has been very active in the Capitol construction for the last two and one-half years, and many of the details were worked out by him. E. J. Johnson has been the architect's representative on the ground for the last three and one-half years, and his work has been highly satisfactory. This page in the original text is blank.

While unfaltering in his faith. he has always opposed earnestly the bitterness of political campaigns in Kentucky, and lits great-st wish and earnest hope in his campaign for Governor was to end the politicai hate in Keutticky and to be a missionary of peace, good-will and true liberty in the State. The problems of his administration in the tobacco troubles,. wtith the night riders and in the great pardon cases-two oppo.ition leg- islatures and many other perplexing matters-have been worked ost with the warmest affection for Kentttcky and the most ea:nest cari and thought for all the people of the State, regardless of party lines. It is too soon to attempt a sumtming up of the results or to fix his trite place in the history of this Commonwealth, but no Governor of Kentucky since the war has been able to win for the Commonwealth stuch recognition. influence and distinction as it has fallen to his lot to win, at home and in other States.

This splendid, old hostelry was built about 1852 and the same architect designed the Burnett House of Cincinnati and the Galt House of Louisville, making a trinity of hotels that for substantiality and roominess cannot be excelled In the entire country. The hotel is built of native stone and is simple and beau- tiful in Its tines. Is occupies a city square and is furnished with taste and designed for comfort. It was erected at the Instance of the City Council in order that Frankfort might prove attractive enough to keep the Capitol within its borders. This historic o!td building has been the scene of many momentous occasions, and could its walls but speak they would be able to recite many incidents that have made andl unmade Governors, Legislators and National statesman In a single night. These same walls have been the spectators of comely and tragedy and have witnessed the making of mucn of Kentucky's bhistory. In the days of uld lang syne celebrities from all over the world have been entertained by mine host at this celebrated inn. The prevent owners, Mrs. Jcrome Weitwel and her son, k. B. Weitzel, have re-furnished and re-decorated the rooms, re-papered the walls, and made it one of the most up-to-date hotels of the South. Its very name conjures before the eye of the epicure, the varied and splendid fare that can be found only in Old Kentucky. The rooms are !arge, and commodious andl the acme of comfort. Hospitality on a liberal and pretentious scale reigns here as It did in the days of long ago. Edward B. Weltzel, the affable and genial manager of this hotel, is perhaps better known throughout Kentucky than many of the legislators who have been making Frankfort their home bi-ennially for years. He is exceedingly popular both with the legislators and the traveling public and always has a pleasant word of greeting for his guests and visitors. His managerial ability is shown by the splendid condition In which the hotel is found at all times, and his fine organization of helpers, each one having his or her own duty and attending ta It, with the re- sult that cleanliness and order go to make one of the many attrac- tions of this celebrated hostelry. 293 OLD CAPITOL COIN0lISSION If.
