Wisconsin State Capitol Interior — Assembly Chamber Plan

Wisconsin State Capitol Interior — Assembly Chamber Plan | Drawing | Wisconsin Historical Society
Floor plan and seating chart for the Assembly for their first meeting in the East Wing of new Wisconsin State Capitol building.  After the completion of the West Wing the Senate moved into this room, and the Assembly moved into the West Wing. In addition to documenting the outline of the visitors gallery in the East Wing, this diagram shows that the members desks originally faced east. Perhaps the morning sun convinced them of the wisdom of reorienting the arrangement.
