A school groups takes a tour of the Senate chambers.
The portraits on the wall were of former Senate presidents and Lt. Governors. Prior to 1982, lieutenant governors served as senate president. The last to serve in this position was Richard Celeste who served as Lt. Gov. from 1975-1979. At the time, candidates for lieutenant governor were elected separately from the Governor. Celeste, a democrat, served under Republican Gov. James A. Rhodes.
