Owner description: This was the seat of government when Iowa City was the state capital.
Reviewed September 25, 2011

This is located on the University of Iowa campus, and you can take a free guided tour and learn a little bit about Iowa history. The building is set up nicely and is well-renovated, and you can get through it in an hour or less. I wouldn't drive all the way to Iowa City just to see this, but if you happen to be in town it's a nice, free site to see along with the rest of the campus and downtown.
