This is a great old building and loved the style. Take the elevator to the third floor and look up toward the top. People are friendly and it is FREE.

If you have been to one of these, you have seen them all...3 story, rotunda, state seal in the center. Does have an elevator if you want to go up to look, but don't go out of your way, if you think it is different
