This stately building is a nice place to see up close. After seeing it in the distance for years from the highway, we stopped by to take a closer look and walk the grounds. Concord is a nice little town with a great Main St... really kept up nicely. The Chamber of Commerce should be proud. The State House is... More

Not a lot to say. It is a state house at one of the founding states in the nation. It is a nice building but I would have hoped for more historical content at such a place-and in such a state.

We stop at every state capitol when we are in reasonable proximity. This was a great experience. You can really visit each chamber and they still use the historic capitol. We spoke to members of the Senate Clerk's staff and met her as well. They could simply not have been nicer or more welcoming. Parking is easy on a quaint... More

My son loves looking at interesting architecture, so he wanted to look at the capitol. To be honest, I thought it was going to be a quick 15 minutes and we would move on, but I was wrong. If you decide to go visit, your first move should be to the visitor center on the first floor. There are maps... More

Your typical gold dome state house that we found in the New England area. It wasn't open as it was Memorial Day but it was right downtown and easy to get to.

We recently visited this building and literally stumbled upon it as we were waiting for antique shops to open. However, we were very pleasantly greeted by staff in the visitors center and we helped along by a very informative greeter/ historian. We seen more "valuable" antiques here than anywhere in our travels and would highly recommend a visit to this... More

The is a great collection of Battle flags from the civil war as you enter the building. The portraits of past governors have interesting brief descriptions of then and other notable individuals. Getting to he senate visitor gallery is abit of a challenge. It is entered from the second flood on the N side of the building.
