DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa officials are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the State Historical Building.

Gov. Terry Branstad and others will attend a gala Friday night aimed at raising funds for the in-house State Historical Museum. It will feature a display of objects from the museum's permanent collection to represent the past 25 years. More than 500 people are expected to attend.

Officials also are currently trying to raise funds to restore the building. The state Department of Cultural Affairs presented a proposal to Branstad on Thursday projecting costs of up to $101 million.

The State Historical Building opened in 1987. It houses several divisions of the cultural affairs agency, State Historical Museum and other offices.
