This is a beautiful building and grounds on the river. Take the river walk to it and up the steps to the building. A great way to spend the morning, then walk into town for lunch.

We took a quick tour inside the legislative building and walked up the staircase. The bronze entry-way bison were beautiful. Very interesting story of how they flooded the building to slide the statues in place. The stairway takes you to the top floor and you can see fossils in the walls of the cut stone.

I love old buildings. The details of the building are really nice. You can take a walking tour with Square Peg Tour that explain the different features. The history is especially cool and has Free Mason beginnings.

Dress lightly - this place is full of hot air..... if you know what I mean. And look out when going round corners, you might collide with an ego. On another note. great architecture, fascinating back story, and some real neat occult stuff.

The building is built with local stone and it is interesting to walk the corridors and see the various fossils contained within the stone. The staff was extremely helpful and we even... More

We had a quick visit here - make sure you have some ID as one of your group has to "sign in" and take responsibility for the group. A beautiful old building set in park like grounds. A beautiful internal staircase with buffalo sculptures, the dome and you can also take a peek in to the debating chamber. Look for... More
