|Harrisburg Capitol ~ Front ~ Dome ~ Side ~ Back|
At the dedication of the Capitol Building in 1906, President Teddy Roosevelt described this structure as "the hamsomest building I have ever seen". The capitol dome rises 272 feet. The vaulted dome weighs 52 million pounds, and was modeled after St Peter's Basilica in Rome. It's beautiful staircase looks like one from Paris Opera.
|Harrisburg Historic District|
The capitol is often referred to as a "palace of art" because of its many sculptures, murals and stained-glass windows, most of which use Pennsylvania themes or were made by Pennsylvanians. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2006. Starting in 1982, the restoration of the capitol has been ongoing.
