While visiting the Capitol building go visit this cathedral it's just a short walk away. The vaulted interior is just as beautiful as the Capitol's and unlike the latter there are no paintings of past governors there. Quite a relief, indeed.

This is an active Catholic cathedral with regular church services. Remodeled interior a few years ago that replicated what the interior of Notre-Dame in Paris, France. Very beautiful.
