Ghosts Haunt the Capitol

This Halloween spend a spooky evening watching the sun set on the Ghosts of Western Civilization as they haunt the Nebraska State Capitol. Lee Lawrie’s relief sculpture on the exterior of the Nebraska State Capitol trace the Evolution of Government and Law in Western History. The early history of the Hebrews, Greeks and Romans was filled with blood and violence as society worked toward a more civil and democratic system of governance and law. Pick a warm autumn evening and stroll around the Capitol, the west facade will glow beautifully in the setting sun as you follow the ghost story and the Capitol’s tower will rise above the darkness with the hopes and dreams of a noble life for all Nebraskans.
