USA - Virginia - State Capitol

Designed by Thomas Jefferson, based on the style of a Roman temple in Nimes, France, construction was begun in 1785 and completed in 1792. Except for the Civil War years when Virginia was the capital of the Confederacy and this building housed the Confederate Congress, the state legislature of Virginia has met here.
