The schedule is set for a week-long celebration of the New Hampshire Statehouse's Bicentennial.

While various events have been held in recent years, the formal celebration starts Sunday, June 2, with an opening ceremony, reenactments of the first Statehouse session in 1819 and tours of the building.

On Monday, there will be special roundtable discussions featuring former governors and executive councilors.

Tuesday's schedule features the state Supreme Court hearing oral arguments in Representative's Hall and an event highlighting the history of the Statehouse press corps. VISIT The Dome in this 360-view captured in 2017 by NHPR's Hannah McCarthy:
