“Michigan's award-winning Capitol Building”
Step back into the Victorian era with a visit to Michigan's award-winning Capitol Building. Designed by Elijah E. Myers, one of the foremost architects of public buildings during the Gilded Age (1865-1914), construction of the Capitol Building took six years and contains over nine acres of hand-painted surfaces. It was dedicated to the citizens of Michigan in 1879. Tours of the public areas and the House and Senate galleries are available every half hour.
When I was a kid you could walk in and wander around at a whim. I'm sure that's not possible now. But it was a good time.
I've been in several state capitols, this is a nice one.
