The Most Beautiful State House in the Country?

 

I say it’s Maryland, followed by ______.  What do you say? 

I’ve likely shot thousands of photos of the Maryland State House.  Spring, summer, fall and winter – it doesn’t disappoint.

So, I began wondering –  if there was a contest for the most beautiful state house, which states would be nominated and who would win?  I’m not talking about what goes on inside of these buildings – just the exterior beauty.

Truthfully, I haven’t seen all of the state houses across the country.  Massachusetts, in my opinion, is up there at the top of the list, but Maryland, My Maryland, still comes in first.   That said, and in the spirit of complete fairness, I’ve included one photo of the Massachusetts State House.  As you will note from the caption on it, I’ve remained very unbiased.

I even went so far as to poll people on Twitter.  I received two responses, which shed some light on our biases.  We’re fond of places we call (or called) home.

You tell me – who would be your picks for the most beautiful state house in the country?  And your choice for winner?

Massachusetts State House, April 2010
Massachusetts State House, April 2010. It has a fancy, gold dome, which Paul Revere had something to do with. It never served as the U.S. Capitol – the Maryland State House did. George Washington never resigned from the Army in this one to become the very first President of the United States. He did that at the Maryland State House.
