Wyoming State government works out of buildings located throughout the state, but many are in Cheyenne. The buildings are maintained by the State Building Commission, formerly named the Capitol Building Commission.

Capitol Complex Building Names


As state government grew and additional buildings were built to consolidate work spaces and move agencies and departments out of leased space, it became increasingly confusing to refer to buildings within what is now known as the Capitol Complex (the area around the Capitol Building in Cheyenne). In the November 4, 1975 Capitol Building Commission meeting, Governor Ed Herschler suggested that the buildings be renamed in honor of the governor in office at the time of their construction and the rest of the commission agreed. As new buildings were built or acquired, the naming tradition continued.
