Oregon State Capitol Tour
Between the two legislative chambers on the second floor is the Governor's Suite with a reception room, a public ceremonial office, and private staff offices. The paneling is matched black walnut.
The map of Oregon's geography above the fireplace in the ceremonial office is a work of Barry Faulkner. The ornate table in the reception area is made of 40 different types of wood and depicts the previous Capitol. It was created and given to the citizens of Oregon by the architectural firm employing Francis Keally. The reception area and ceremonial office are used frequently for art exhibits.
Early in the morning of August 30, 2008, a fire broke out on the terrace outside the governor's office complex on the second floor of the Capitol. The fire resulted in water and smoke damage throughout the central part of the building. The fire began in construction materials being used on a terrace project outside the governor's ceremonial office.
