JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KFVS) - For the first time in nearly a century the statue atop the Missouri Capitol Building has come down.
The bronze Ceres statue will be cleaned and restored before it's put back in place.
It's more than 10 feet tall and weighs more than 1,500 pounds.
It was installed back in 1924 and has sat on top of the capitol dome ever since.
People got the chance to see the statue up close before it was trucked away.
The restoration is expected to take about a year.
