Completed in 1840, the State Capitol is one of the nation's finest and best-preserved examples of a major civic building in the Greek Revival style of architecture. It is a National Historic Landmark and a state historic site, featuring a domed rotunda and restored House and Senate chambers.
Until 1888 the Capitol housed all of North Carolina's state government, but the governor still maintains a working office in the building. It offers free historical exhibits along with self-guided tours on weekdays and guided tours at selected hours on weekends. Many historical statues and memorials are located on its grounds on Union Square.
The Capitol is part of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncdcr.gov). Events at this and other state historic sites are listed at www.ncculture.com.
