When completed in 1917, the state capitol building project ran out of funds before a dome could cap the new structure. This feature being absent made the Oklahoma capitol building more unique, as one of perhaps a dozen that did not support a dome. Once the new dome was constructed in 2001-2 at a cost of over $20 million, I was appalled at the expense and new addition, thinking our beloved state capitol was no longer unique, but rather a larger version of the one in Salt Lake City. I held this view for months, until the dome made the hitherto subdued capitol more visible from countless viewpoints around the city.
