The gold-leaf dome of the State Capitol rises above Bushnell Park. Built in 1878, the building houses the state's executive offices and legislative chamber as well as historical memorabilia. On a tour, you can walk through the Hall of Flags, see a statue of Connecticut state hero Nathan Hale, and observe the proceedings of the General Assembly, when in session, from the public galleries.

As US capitol buildings go, this is well worth a visit. The outside is over the top in a faux Gothic way, while the inside has a distinctly Moorish look to it. Still, the detail is remarkable and makes it noteworthy.
