DENVER - Sept. 16, 2019 - This summer, the Capitol's Old Supreme Court Chamber reopened after an extensive restoration that brought it back to its original historic look while improving technical capabilities.
A lower dais was constructed, additional adjustable seating was installed, and the sloped floor was leveled out and re-carpeted. A/V and acoustical updates have improved the functionality of this historic room. Additionally, as in the House and Senate Chamber restorations, stencil was uncovered and re-painted.
