The Office of the Capitol Commission began the series of Commemorative ornaments in 2004. The 3″ solid brass ornaments feature architectural or artistic detail of the Capitol and commemorate the beauty of the Capitol or the preservation work of the Office of the Capitol Commission. Most ornaments for the subsequent years are still available, some in limited quantities. Information about purchasing the current OCC Commemorative ornament or a past year’s ornament is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning the Tourism Supervisor at (402)471-0449. Ornaments are $21.95 plus tax and any shipping required.
