New Hampshire State Capitol
The dome of the New Hampshire Capitol building dates to 1818, the year the eagle was placed on top. That wooden eagle, now on display inside the State House, was replaced in 1957 by a copper replica, which stands 150 feet above the streets of Concord.
Built in a Greek Revival style, the New Hampshire State House building has an octagonal space supporting a gilded dome and the sculpture of an eagle. EverGreene removed the gold leaf coating of the capitol’s dome and installed a new, 23.75 karat gold leaf adornment for the 2,300 square foot dome. EverGreene’s conservators repaired the ornamental painting and gilding on the dome and eagle, restoring them back to their original condition.
