This is the interior view of the 272-foot high, 52 million pound dome of the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, PA. It is best viewed from the base of the grand marble staircase by laying on the cobblestone and mosaic covered floor.

The Capitol building was designed by architect Joseph Miller Huston and officially opened on October 4, 1906. The previous building was destroyed by fire in 1897.

It was added to National Register of Historic Places in September 1906. NRHP Reference #: 77001162

I believe we are created in the image of the creator, and that as we express ourselves creatively we reflect a bit of God’s nature.

    Fabulous image of my state’s state house!

  • It is an amazing building. I used to work there in the mid-1980s. I love visiting and photographing it.
