Owner description: Teddy Roosevelt declared that this Italian Renaissance-style building was “the handsomest building I ever saw”. Indeed, the State Capitol, with its vaulted dome and grand staircase and the murals and painted floors inside, is thing to behold.

By far the most beautiful state capitol building in the Unites States. I have personally seen almost two thirds of all of them and very few even come close!
