Kansas residents and officials used words like “cool” and “awesome” Thursday to describe the restored grandeur of the statehouse as the doors to a new visitor center opened. The festivities marked the completion of the nearly $330 million restoration project that took 13 years. Gov. Sam Brownback, Topeka Mayor Larry Wolgast and members of the Kansas Historical Society cut a ribbon to open the new center.
