There is a campus of old brick buildings on the hill across from the Farm Show Complex.

Does anyone know what is housed in those buildings and what it used to be? It looks like it used to be a college and it looks like it is currently used by the State.

Thank you.

There is a sign that says "DSG Annex". That is all I could locate.

They should renovate those for use by the legislature. A campus type dorm / apartment complex with rooms like a mid priced motel. Add conference rooms and a cafeteria.

Mandate that legislators have a choice - the dorm or no per diem.

They could run a shuttle between the dorm and the capitol complex.
