This is a beautiful old State Capitol Building, located in downtown and easily accesssible. The grounds are very well kept and the old trees provide tons of shade. It is so picturesque. Enjoyed time just walking around the entire block.

We weren't able to see the inside of the capitol building as it was all locked up. A disappointment as it is a nice looking building.

Presuming you have some time during your day, this beautiful Capitol is best explored on the hour-plus tour that takes you through the history of the state's governors as well as all the building's history and architectural details. I learned a lot and enjoyed my visit.
