Description
Architect: Joseph M. Huston

History: Dedicated by President Theodore Roosevelt upon completion in 1906 and architecturally inspired by St. Peters Basilica in Rome, many consider this pinnacle of the Commonwealth as the finest state capitol building in the United States. The brilliantly restored rotunda and Senate and House of Representative Chambers are particularly exquisite spaces adorned with marble, murals, gold leaf and stained glass. Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
