Fodor's Review

This beautifully preserved example of Greek Revival architecture from 1840 once housed all the functions of state government. Today it's part museum, part executive offices. Under its domed rotunda, is contained a copy of Antonio Canova's statue of George Washington, who's depicted as a Roman general, with a tunic, tight-fitting body armor, and a short cape. Guided tours are given Saturday starting at 11 and 2.
