One of the hottest holiday gifts of last year is now available again this year. Earlier today the second annual state capitol ornament was unveiled.
Last year's ornament was a replica of the state capitol building and raised more than $10,000 for the State Capitol Restoration Fund.
This year the metal ornament is based on "Forward." The state capitol's most prominent statue, the gilded female sculpture sits atop the dome of the state capitol. The statue is visible for miles around and has grown to symbolize the state's motto.
The ornament is available for purchase on line at www.wisconsinhistory.org
