The State Capitol--home to the oldest continuous, English-speaking lawmaking body in the New World--has influenced scores of other buildings, from the United States Capitol to banks across the country. The capitol was first occupied in 1788. Thomas Jefferson modeled his design on the Maison Carree, a first century Roman temple in Nimes, France.
Free tours of the Virginia State Capitol are available daily, and the Capitol is just a short drive from Maury Place at Monument.
