The Colorado State Capitol Building is the home of the General Assembly and the Governor's offices and the offices of the Lieutenant Governor. Constructed of white granite in the 1890s, the building intentionally is reminiscent of the U.S. Capitol. Its gold dome is made of actual gold leaf that was added in 1908 to commemorate the Colorado Gold Rush. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and became part of Denver's National Historic Landmark District in 2012.
