This painting by Phineas Staunton of LeRoy, was exhibited at the art College of Ingham University. When the university closed, it was sold for $64. And then donated to the LeRoy High School and hung in the old auditorium. When the new auditorium was built the painting was stored in the Academic Building now the Jello Gallery. It was donated to the US Senate and then restored. It now hangs in the Brumidi Staircase that leads to the Senate Chamber. The importance of the painting is that is one of only three known views of the old Senate Chamber.
