PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The governor’s mansion in Pierre now includes a piece of the nearby state Capitol.

A crew installed the stained glass window in the residence on Friday morning. The window includes a glass remnant from stained glass restoration recently completed at the Capitol. It is a gift from Conrad Schmitt Studios, which performed the Capitol work.

Kevin Grabowski of Conrad Schmitt says the window is meant “to do something … that starts to build the history in this building.”

The Wisconsin firm gave Gov. Dennis Daugaard the window on Nov. 1 to celebrate South Dakota’s 125th anniversary.

The $3 million Capitol restoration involved refurbishing stained glass in the Capitol rotunda, above the grand staircase and over the House and Senate chambers.
