Description

The booklet "Your State Capitol: Michigan State Capitol" was translated from English to Russian by Dasha C. Nisula and Dasha Lozinskaya to accommodate Russian speaking visitors to the capitol. From the introduction to the visitors:

"Welcome to the Michigan State Capitol. We are delighted you have taken the time to visit us and tour this historic landmark."

"In 1987, the Michigan Legislature established the Michigan Capitol Committee and charged it with overseeing a landmark restoration of the aging building. Begun in 1989 and completed in 1992, the restoration won national acclaim with top awards from the National Trust of Historic Preservation. In 1992, the National Park Service also named the Capitol a National Historic Landmark, an award reserved only for America's most important historic places. Although widely honored for its authentic restoration, the Capitol did not become a museum. Instead, it remains a dynamic, living building, fully prepared to honor its past while serving the people of Michigan as a modern and efficient seat of state government."
