Excerpt from Addresses of Hon. I. A. Lapham, LL. D., And Hon. Edward Salomon: At the Dedication of the Rooms in the South Wing of the Capital for the States Historical Society of Wisconsin, Wednesday Evening, January 24, 1866

The State Historical Society having labored many years under great disadvantages and inconveniences, for want of proper and commodious apartments, petitioned the legislature in January, 1865, for the use of the whole of the second story of the new south wing of the Capitol, which was readily granted, and the building commissioners directed to finish and prepare the rooms for the reception of the Society's Library, Gallery and Collections. During the year the rooms were finished under the direction of the architect, E. T. Mix, Esq., and in consultation with the Library committee of the Society. The two main rooms are each 56 feet long by 24 feet wide, and 24 feet high, which, with a hall between, 13 feet wide, are lined with shelves and cases.

At the annual meeting of the Society, held at the old rooms, Jan. 2d, 1866, Messrs. Horace Rublee, James Ross, Col. S. V. Shipman, S. U. Pinney and F. G. Tibbits, were appointed a committee of arrangements for the appropriate dedication of the new rooms. The removal of the Library commenced the next day, Jan. 3d, and was so far completed as to admit of the dedication exercises on the 24th of the month, which was designated for the occasion, and several hundred invitations sent out to the pioneers and prominent men of the state, and the friends of the Society in other parts of the country. Responses were received from Hon. J. P. Atwood, Hon. Arad Joy, Col. W. H. Watson, Gen. H. L. Dousman, Col. John Hancock and others.

While the rooms were lighted, opened, and in their best order, on the dedication evening, yet the audience was so large, that the exercises were necessarily held in the adjoining Assembly Chamber.
