State Capitol Building

Located in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, our capitol building is easily identified with its towering center dome glistening in gold.  This large stone structure was constructed between 1871 - 1886 for just under $ 3 million and has since undergone various restorations, with a major exterior restoration project completed in 2001.  In this photo of the West Capitol Terrace, also visible is the Pioneers of the Territory sculpture.
