Oklahoma’s Capitol makes list of ‘Most Endangered Places’
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma’s crumbling Capitol has made the list of the most endangered places in the state for the second year in a row.
The annual list is put together by the non-profit organization “Preservation Oklahoma,” which recognizes historical sites at risk of demolition or deterioration.
Right now, large chunks of limestone are falling from the outside of Oklahoma’s nearly 100-year-old Capitol building.
Barricades have been put up to keep people away.
Organizers say it also has electrical issues and problems with rotting pipes.
There are two separate proposals making their way through the legislature right now to repair the aging structure.
