Which capitol buildings are the most impressive?

State capitals are significant places. As the seat of local government, they wield power, and capital buildings often reflect this status in their elegant aesthetics. Here are just three remarkable state capitol buildings for your in-person or online perusal.

1. Wisconsin's state capitol building was completed in 1917. Above the unique granite dome lies a three-ton statue created by Daniel Chester French, the sculptor who gave us the Lincoln statue at the Lincoln Memorial in D.C. 2. Iowa's completed its state capitol building in 1886. It has five domes, and a 23-carat gold leaf adorns the 275-foot middle dome. The stunning interiors are decked out in 29 types of marble and French crystal chandeliers. 3. President Teddy Roosevelt called the Pennsylvania state capitol building the 'handsomest building' he ever saw. Lofty praise, indeed. Come for the American Renaissance exterior and stay for the gorgeous stained glass.
