Visit Charleston WV

West Virginia State Capitol

Its dome is modeled after the U.S. Capitol dome, though it’s actually five feet taller, and is gilded in 23½ carat gold. Guided tours are available at no cost. Don’t miss the state Supreme Court as Gilbert modeled the U.S. Supreme Court after his design here. Outside, the park-like grounds invite visitors to walk, picnic and play, and take part in a popular pastime - geocaching.
