Ceres has been removed. Don't know why or where it has gone. The state house looks odd without it. The dome is bright and shiny gold.

April 2018 - The Ceres statue has just been removed for a cleaning and will be replaced back upon the state house dome later this year after the dome itself is cleaned and re-laminated. As an historically agricultural state, which is still true in many...More

This makes a nice crown to a photogenic capitol dome - the building and grounds are definitely worth checking out while visiting the area!

Located on the top of the statehouse, this statue is a lovely topper to the gold leave dome. Just don't miss the guided tour of the statehouse!

You can't miss seeing this statue. If the gold plated dome of the State House is in view, so is Ceres! It's lovely and overlook the beautiful city of Montpelier.

You will find her looking down at you from atop the State Capitol. Great tour, and free. Visit after session is over in May. You will notice, the only State Capitol without a McDonalds!

Ceres is perched atop the Statehouse dome in Montpelier, Vermont's capitol city. As you drive into Montpelier, you can't miss her. Ceres is the (Greek?) goddess of agriculture, and a famous landmark in Vermont. Appropriate for such a rural state. Locals get a kick out...More

She sits atop the Capitol dome in this agricultural state. And that is not a crown on her head: it is spikes to help keep birds away. Bring binoculars.
