Oklahoma is planning a series of events to mark the centennial of the state Capitol as work continues on the restoration and renovation of the century-old building.
 
Governor Mary Fallin announced Monday that she'll host a public ceremony June 26 to commemorate the centennial. Fallin says visitors can sign a guestbook, which will later be placed in a time capsule to be opened in 100 years.
 
The state will also fly Oklahoma's original flag from 1917 over the next two weeks to mark the anniversary.
 
A $245 million project is underway to repair, renovate and update the state Capitol, both inside and out. The renovation work is expected to continue for the next five years.
