Colorado State Capitol building

wikisays: "home of the Colorado legislature and the offices of the Colorado Governor and Lt. Governor. The building is intentionally reminiscent of the United States Capitol. Designed by Elijah E. Myers, it was constructed in the 1890s from Colorado white granite. The distinctive gold dome consists of a plate of real gold, first added in 1908, commemorating the Colorado Gold Rush"
