Welcome to the Capitol Square Foundation

Engaging Ohioans with the Legacy of Our Statehouse

Situated on Capitol Square in Columbus, the Ohio Statehouse is a beautifully-restored monument to the people of Ohio, their vision of our democracy, and the dream of a better place to live and work.

But more than a monument to the past, it is a living museum where the people’s business is conducted.

The Capitol Square Foundation was established to increase public awareness of and to involve citizens in the history of the Ohio Statehouse. Its purpose is to raise funds to obtain, restore and maintain artifacts and other items related to the history and enhancement of this grand monument and its adjoining grounds, so that the seat of Ohio’s government may reflect the dignity of the state and its citizens.
