The Friends of the Vermont State House is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the fulfillment of the Capitol building's full potential as the structure of first importance to Vermont.

To accomplish this, the Friends focus on conservation and restoration of the Capitol's historic integrity and promotion of public appreciation of the building and its collections.

We work in close cooperation with the Legislature and government officials to ensure that the historic and symbolic dignity of the building continues to enhance the vital continuing function it fills.

The three main activities of the non-profit, all volunteer Friends of the Vermont State House are: restoration of the Vermont State House, conservation of its historic integrity and collections, and producing information about its value and history.

We welcome your comments, suggestions and - above all - your visit to Vermont's beautiful State House. Please tour these linked pages to learn more about the building and our organization.

2009 was the 150th birthday of our Capitol building. This sesquicentennial celebrates the rebuilding of our third State House after the 1857 fire that devastated its predecessor.
