    1884 · There is now a Capital Building

    Age 22

    The capitol building in Des Moines originally had a budget of $1,500,000 but complications arose because of the need of a redesign. The building was dedicated on January 17, 1884, but it wasn’t completed until 1886. On January 4, 1904, a fire started and swept through the areas that housed the Supreme Court and Iowa House of Representatives. A major restoration was performed and documented, with the addition of electrical lighting, elevators, and a telephone system. By the early 1980s, the sandstone exterior of the Capitol had started deteriorating and prompted the installation of canopies to protect pedestrians from falling rubble. The entire reconstruction process took around 18 years to complete.

    Name Meaning

    English (Warwickshire and Northamptonshire): from the Middle English personal name Sabin (from Latin Sabinus; see 2 below) or its female equivalent Sabine (from Latin Sabina). In medieval England the feminine form was always more popular as a personal name.

    French: from the Old French personal name Sabin, from Latin Sabinus. The name was originally referred to the Sabines, an ancient Italic people of central Italy whose name is of uncertain origin. In the 8th century BC the Romans slaughtered the Sabine menfolk and carried off the women. More influential as far as name-giving is concerned was the existence of several early Christian saints named Sabinus.

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Sabháin ‘descendant of Sabhán’, a personal name based on sabh ‘cub’. As an Irish surname, this has mostly been absorbed into Savage .
