Mississippi officials are celebrating the designation of the state Capitol as a National Historic Landmark.

Republican Gov. Phil Bryant and others took part in a ceremony Thursday inside the structure that is still a working statehouse.

The Capitol cost only $1 million when it was built between 1901 and 1903. It has undergone multiple restoration efforts, including current work to make the dome waterproof.
