Old State Capitol.
The Old State Capitol, built in 1837, is considered a perfect example of
Greek Revival architecture, as well as one of the most historic buildings
west of the Alleghenies. The rooms are furnished in the period of 1840 to 1860,
with many objects relating to famous people who frequented the building, such as
Stephen A. Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, and Ulysses S. Grant.
