Pennsylvania State Capitol - Harrisburg, PA

I had several hours to dally away recently while in downtown Harrisburg, PA. The state capitol building was beside where I was waiting for my daughter so I made the most of a beautiful day. Our state capitol is a beutiful ornate building that dominates the skyline from a distance. It was built in 1906. The dome alone has so many facets to look at that is goes unnoticed most of the time. The street view is from the front steps of the capitol looking toward the Susquehanna river. It reminds me of Mayberry! The intricate details in many of these old buildings amaze me that an artist took the time many many years ago to put their legacy down. Thankfully many generations till now and yet to come can enjoy their works.
