Walking around the grounds was a delight and it was spectacular inside. The tour guide was excellent and we were especially taken with the ceilings decorated with gold leaf and the dome was one of the most beautiful we have seen.

This is a very impressive building. It clearly shows just how wealthy RI was. So much gilt on display. We had an informative tour led by the excellent Ted. It was good to discover more about the early days of colonial settlement.

The Rhode Island State House, is a very unique building! Unlike most all other statehouses, this one, Louisiana, Nebraska, and, Arizona, are decidedly different in their architecture. The view of it or from it are beautiful, and, the guided tour was very good!

Its right across the street although the main entrance faces the opposite direction so it could be a 10 minute jaunt around to the Smith Street side.
