The Colorado State Capitol building was built in the 1890’s and in 1908 they used 24 karat gold to plate the dome. The gold plated dome commemorates Colorado’s Gold Rush days, and the early pioneers and miners who helped build the state. The dome towers 180 feet above, and contains stained glass dedicated to the 16 initial founders of the city of Denver.
