Subject

Two Constitutions

Description

Illustrations of the first and second permanent state houses (1794-1813; 1814-1824) in Frankfort, KY; both were destroyed by fire, which was an unfortunate pattern. The Legislature had previously met in temporary buildings, and would continue through a number of temporary and permanent headquarters (only one still stands) before the current Capitol was erected in 1904.
