Photographer's Note

I am going to add a few photos of State Capitol buildinigs after my trip which I did a couple weeks ago. I already posted a Capitol of Michigan and Iowa in the past. During those trips I like to visit a historical objects because they teach me more about our beautiful country.

The Illinois State Capitol, located in Springfield, Illinois, is the capitol and seat of government of the U.S. state of Illinois. The current building is the sixth capitol to serve the state since its entry into the United States in 1818. The current capitol is in the architectural style of the French Renaissance. The capitol was designed by Cochrane and Garnsey, an architecture and design firm based in Chicago, Illinois. Ground was first broken for a new capitol on March 11, 1869, and it was completed twenty years later for a total cost of $4,500,000.
