State capitol tour is an architectural history lesson

When was the last time you entered the Capitol? While hundreds of schoolchildren, retirees and members of civic organizations may tour the facility on a given day, many people haven't ventured inside for years. That's a mistake. The Capitol is a breathtaking facility that -- thanks to a $150 million renovation completed earlier this decade -- combines modern functionality while retaining many elements of the original construction.
