FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Abraham Lincoln's in a wooden box. So are Jefferson Davis and two other statues of prominent figures in Kentucky history.
Visitors to the state Capitol won't see much of the building's ornate rotunda. It's closed for repairs until next year in preparation for the Capitol's 100th anniversary. State curator David Buchta (BOOK'-tuh) tells The Louisville Courier-Journal that the rotunda, which is sits directly beneath the Capitol's 174-feet dome, hasn't been closed since the mid-1950s.
