Capitol Request

Well, it's not very picturesque right now, but this is our State Capitol - a photo by request. It's hard to get a good view of it because of a big construction project. They're adding underground "wings" to the building. The beautiful trees around the building, many planted by famous people through history, either died in the process or were taken down. The building is made of sandstone quarried from Table Rock, right above town. The front doors look golden in this picture, but that's really just plywood - and I think some other renovations are going on inside. I know many of the marble stairs had become really worn by people's footsteps and not very safe. I believe some of those are being replaced as part of the project.
