Today marks the third anniversary of the grand opening of the Old Capitol Museum after its post-Katrina restoration. OCM Director Clay Williams documented the 2007-2008 restoration of this National Historic Landmark in hundreds of photographs. We have selected a few to look at here, but you can view more in the Restoration Gallery. Read more about the restoration here.
