The bill was adopted and raised over $1 million by a six year state income tax. Architect Elijah E. Myers' design named Tuebor, or I will defend, was selected and he was commissioned to design the new capitol building. The renaissance revival brick and sandstone building soared 267 feet from the ground and was dedicated on January 1, 1879.
