Nebraska State Capitol

Lincoln, Nebraska
Client: State of Nebraska

The Nebraska State Capitol designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue in 1920 is known as the “Tower on the Plains” for its integration of a functional tower central to the design. In 1933, the Nebraska Legislature re-appropriated the Capitol Commission’s unexpended budget leaving the four courtyard fountains incomplete. In 2014, the State of Nebraska appropriated monies to complete the project to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the state. Waterline provided design services to design the water features including four (4) bronze bowls and collars cast to the original design drawings. The water features were placed in the original courtyard locations and utilized the existing
historic tile finishes.
