The regal capitol building surrounded by forest is emblematic of this proudly rural state. With the gleaming dome topped by the goddess of agriculture and columns of Barre granite measuring 6 feet in diameter, the statehouse is home to the country's oldest legislative chambers still in their original condition. Half-hour tours take you through the governor's office and the house and senate chambers. Interior paintings and exhibits make much of Vermont's sterling Civil War record.
