A drawing by Esthel Benner of a proposed new Oregon State Capitol. Soon after the earlier capitol was destroyed by fire in 1935, state officials began research for a replacement. The work eventually included comparing other state capitols and commissioning an architectural design competition. The Capitol Reconstruction Commission later replaced the Oregon State Planning Board as the central body responsible for planning the new state capitol. View other proposed designs.
