The Story of the Capitol

Architectural rendering of the State Capitol (19687.TO.0030.55.9.60, Chester R. Cowen Collection, OHS).

The Oklahoma Capitol is a beautiful building located in the eastern part of Oklahoma City. It serves as the site of the legislature as well as a physical representation of the Oklahoma state motto Labor omnia vincit or “Work conquers all.” It is also the site for community events such as the Oklahoma Memorial Marathon, the television show American Ninja Warrior, and many others.
