“home of 360-degree democracy”
The Old State House (completed 1796) in Hartford, Connecticut is generally believed to have been designed by noted American architect Charles Bulfinch as his first public building. The State House is currently managed by the Office of Legislative Management of the Connecticut General Assembly.
There is a lot of history in this place! The video was down when I visited so I got a serviceable ~30 min tour. Highlights would be the fantastic Trumbull Revolutionary War paintings on loan from nearby Wadsworth Atheneum, and the Museum of Oddities. Not every day you see a two-headed calf! Spent a pleasant 45 minutes. For kiddies they have a fabulous hands-on exhibit downstairs replete with an antique fire engine and Lego model of the building.
