Today we visited the State Capitol of Kentucky. Kentucky's Capitol is the fourth permanent building since statehood in 1792. There had been like many states heated discussion on where the state capital should be located. It was finally decided in 1904 when the legislature voted to spend one million dollars for a new capitol to replace the 1830 capitol in Frankfort. Ground was broken in 1904 and on June 2, 1910 Kentucky's New Capitol was dedicated. The architect was the distinguished Frank Mills Andrews.
The style of the building is classified as Beaux Arts style with elements of classical architecture; a combination of Greek architecture with highly ornate elegance of French styling.
We had an interesting tour of the building.
