Excavation for the Montana Capitol began in 1896. In 1898, the architectural firm of Bell & Kent was chosen to design the building, which was dedicated on July 4, 1902. The construction of the Capitol was fraught with political corruption, including kickbacks and substitution of inferior materials. There have been several expansions and renovations over the years, including the highly-praised 1995-2000 interior restoration.
