This State Capitol is a beautiful building, and if you are into architecture and government buildings, it is worth viewing. The architect, Call Gilbert, also designed the US Supreme Court building and any lawyer instantly will recognize the similarities with the WV Supreme Court chambers.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful capitol buildings in the US. The dome is amazing. Take a nice stroll around the area to take in historic homes and the walkway along the Kanawha River.

Lovely grounds to stroll around. Cultural Center on NW grounds, several memorials, great history and a panoramic view of the river (which is lovely). It's also a great place for photo opportunities.
