I can't be more specific than that because I wasn't part of their... More

Enjoyed a nice tour here on a rainy November day. The tour guide was pleasant, enthusiastic and quite knowledgeable about the history of the building and the artwork.

I have been in Legislative Hall many times. The paints are outstanding and the dark wood throughout the building is very special. It's very interesting to be in the balcony of legislative hall and look down on the proceedings.

The political heart of the First State. Legislative Hall is centrally located on the "mall" in Dover, Delaware. An easy walk from the Green, "Leg Hall", as it's known locally, is where the political decisions of the day take place. The First State is a small wonder and our legislators are highly accessbile as compared to larger states. Visit while... More
