To the capitol we go!

This Old Castle is excited to annouce our next excursion will be to Lincoln! Join Joslyn Castle & Gardens, Preserve Omaha, and History Nebraska for a rare behind-the-scenes tour of the rennovations happening in our historic Nebraska State Capitol Building.

Our tour will be led by longtime BVH architect Dan Worth, who has worked extensively on the capitol building's exterior restoration and the ongoing interior restoration and HVAC replacement. This is a unique opportunity to see the active progress on the restoration.

Due to capacity limitations, registration is required. Guests are responsible for their own transportation.

More about Dan Worth via BVH Architecture:
"Dan attended the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and the Architectural Association in London where he graduated with degrees in architecture and urban planning. Dan joined BVH in 1984 in the Omaha studio and moved to the Lincoln studio in 1993, which he managed for more than 15 years, helping it grow, thrive, and double in size and commissions.

Dan’s passion for historic preservation runs deep and has helped define an illustrious career. He has been a catalyst for the preservation of historically meaningful buildings throughout the Plains States, the importance and value of whose architectural heritage was previously unappreciated. Dan’s dedication to disseminating technical expertise and establishing best practices has significantly elevated the standards of historic preservation nationally and internationally.

Dan has led the planning, programming, and design of 26 National Historic Landmarks, including the National Air and Space Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Natural History Museum, and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum for the Smithsonian Institution. He also designed and oversaw the 15-year-long exterior restoration program for the Nebraska State Capitol. His current work includes the iconic Gateway Arch, recipient of a Getty Foundation grant for restoration."
