1879 · New State Capitol Building Dedicated

After the second state capitol had been destroyed, Michigan Governor Henry P. Baldwin initiated the passing of a bill that would cover the costs for a new building. 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.

Name Meaning

English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name from two hamlets named Ogden in Rochdale and Oldham parishes (Lancashire). The placename derives from Old English āc + denu ‘oak valley’.
