    HISTORYMarzo 31, 2010
    Built in 1798, the State House is widely acclaimed as one of the more magnificent buildings in the US. The golden dome, its most distinct feature, once made of wood, was most recently gilded in 1997.

    Don't miss the informative tours available here daily. Best to call ahead for timings and reserve. Great insight to the workings of the state's legislators - House of reps and the senates.

    The dome was painted gray during WWII to keep it dark during black outs, then re-gilded with 23k gold in 1997. The gold leaf is so thin that if rolled together, would be about the size of a pineapple

    Free tours before 3.30pm each day. Really beautiful and worth a visit. Enter via the general hooker entrance (not the main entrance, that's ceremonial).

    Building started on July 4th 1795, when, with Samuel Adam and Paul Revere presiding, 15 white horses (one for each state in the union -13 plus Vermont and Kentucky) pulled the cornerstone up the hill.

    After you visit the State House, stroll around Beacon Hill, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston. Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once lived here.

    One of Boston's most enduring nicknames, "The Hub of the Universe," is from a remark by Oliver Wendell Holmes in which he states that the "Boston State-House is the Hub of the Solar System."

    Our State House was designed by Charles Bulfinch, America's first great architect, who also designed the first dome of the US Capitol (replaced in the mid-1800s by the one we know today.)
