The rotunda is gorgeous! The whole building is gorgeous. 43 different type of stone from six other countries and eight states were used in construction.
This is the third and final capitol building. The first two were destroyed by fire and / or damaged severely.
This was started in 1906 and completed in 1917 at a cost of $7.25 million.
None of the chambers were open but we walked upstairs for a peek inside.
The archways and intricate detail work was fantastic.
We climbed the top of the stairs and went outside.
From up there, we could see more of the stone sculptures looking down on the grounds.
The self-guided tour of the Wisconsin State Capitol was interesting and well worth the time. We're glad we saw it.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles today!
