Oct 17, 2013 - Newcastle, OK - AAA Adult RV Park

The Oklahoma State Capital building was completed in 1919 and at the time had over 400,000 square feet and six floors. The original plans called for a dome, but due to budget constraints and a shortage of building materials due to World War I, the dome was not constructed at that time....
