Beautiful mosaic ceilings and floors, paintings and sculptures inside the 400-foot high capitol building are as impressive as its marble, bronze and gold leaf exterior and white tower topped by a bronze statue. Free guided tours are available.

After seeing quite a few domed state capitols, it’s nice (but sometimes surprising) to see different architecture. We stopped by the capitol in the early evening to look at the grounds and had the place to ourselves. We easily parked and saw no one other...More
