Built in 1888, the Indiana Statehouse is a beautiful capitol building. We were too late for the guided tour, but were able to find virtual tours on Youtube that told us everything we wanted to know.

Only got to see the exterior of the Indiana State Capitol. They have some really restrictive visitation hours (particularly on the weekends).
