New Hampshire State House

A building block in this elegant structure states that it is "the nation's oldest state house in which the legislature still occupies its original chambers." Designed by architect Stuart Park and built in 1819, the Greek Revival building was constructed with smooth granite blocks. Its defining feature is the gold dome which is gilded with 24-karat leafing - a process which has been repeated several times throughout the building's history. In the front garden area you can find several statues of important figures in New Hampshire history, including Daniel Webster. (Submitted by Steph R)
