Century-old Oklahoma Capitol artifacts on display

Posted: Updated:
  OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Century-old artifacts from the groundbreaking of the Oklahoma State Capitol will be on display as state officials outline their plans for renovating the structure.
   The 100th anniversary of the Capitol's July 20, 1914, groundbreaking falls on Sunday. The Oklahoma Historical Society will display artifacts from the event Thursday at the Capitol.
   State officials will also discuss plans to repair the aging building. Gov. Mary Fallin signed legislation this spring authorizing a $120 million bond issue for extensive repairs to the building, where chunks of limestone and mortar have fallen from the building's facade. Barricades have cordoned off the south side of the structure since 2011.
   Office of Management and Enterprise Services officials will discuss preliminary planning efforts for the repairs _ the most extensive in the 97-year-old Capitol building's history.
