This Corinthian-style edifice was modeled after the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The famous Esther Hobart Morris Statue stands in front of the building, in honor of the first woman to hold judicial office in modern times.

We visited in mid May and they are still working on the Capitol. Several areas under cover. Easy walk from Depot Plaza up Capitol Ave to see this.

The block and building are currently closed for restoration. Unfortunately, it was also closed two years ago when we were here. They have made fine progress since our last visit. I’m sure it will be beautiful.

The State Capitol is closed for a major overhaul. I think it is scheduled to reopen July 2019. I am sure it is worth a visit but cannot properly rate at this time

The capital building fits the local theme and even looks like Edwardian architecture and is decorated like a capital should be. Stop and take a handful of pictures and get a tour if you can. You might also see if the governor's mansion is open...More

We walked around this lovely and grand State Capitol that is having major renovations. It has been closed for some time and still will be for awhile. We took photos and noticed the replica Liberty Bell. Too bad the renovations were not complete!

We stopped to look at the capitol, but seeing even the exterior is a challenge with all of the scaffolding and tarps. But if you live a couple of thousand miles away, you make do. The front is still visible, and some of the grounds.

We were so disappointed that the capitol is closed until 2019, which is according to their website. However, in the state museum there is an exhibit on the renovation and a film with information about the history of the capitol and the current work bring...More
