On the tour we were told that this building was patterned from the Capital Building in D.C. Beautiful and large build. You can't miss it. You can see it from the Arkansas River.

A throwback to older times when form and function were not mutually exclusive, the State Capitol rivals any public building anywhere in beauty and even accessibility. It is a treasure chest of State history and, from an architectural perspective, never fails to yield a surprise...More
