Connecticut State Capitol

Saves: 9
Check-ins: 3
One of the most ornate capitol buildings in the country, the Connecticut State Capitol was constructed in the late 1800s. The architecture is borrowed from many styles including French, Gothic, and Eastlake. Much of the materials were taken from the local areas including marble from the home state and granite from Rhode Island. The elaborate rotunda was once topped by a statue but taken down after it was damaged in a hurricane - and then melted down for ammunition during WWII. Using the original mold, the statue was recast and now resides at the capitol albeit not as the figurehead on top of the dome.
