RALEIGH — The State Capitol will be closed to visitors Sunday for scheduled maintenance.
Crews from Progress Energy will be finishing installation of a new transformer, and power must be shut off in the historic building while the work is being done, state officials said. The Capitol is expected to reopen at 9 a.m. Monday.
A National Historic Landmark, the State Capitol is one of the finest and best-preserved examples of the Greek Revival style of architecture in the United States.
Until 1888 its granite walls housed all of state government, and the legislature met there until 1961.
The governor and her staff occupy offices in the Capitol.
