Check out this tour of the Capitol, from 1987, with Ron Kaminski. Ron, Chair of the Society to Preserve the Capitol, provides an overview of the architecture and interior detail for which the Capitol is known. In addition to spearheading the 1987 campaign to renovate the Capitol, Ron had served as President of the Board, Board member, and on various ad hoc committees for many years. We are grateful for his vision, dedication, and leadership.

The Capitol Civic Centre celebrated the theater’s landmark 100th anniversary on June 16, 2021. One hundred years earlier, the George Brothers wanted to provide the Manitowoc community a place to experience culture by building a theatre offering movies and vaudeville. Much has changed since then and to highlight this momentous occasion, we had invited community members who have supported the organization to join the Capitol Centennial Society.
