1900 Kanawha Boulevard East

Situated along the Kanawha River, the classical-styled State Capitol was designed by architect Cass Gilbert, who also designed the U.S. Treasury Building and the U.S. Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. With an exterior of buff Indiana limestone, the State Capitol's 293-foot gold dome that tops the structure is five feet higher than the dome of the U.S. Capitol. The entire dome is gilded in 14 karat gold leaf applied to the copper and lead roof. It is presently the tallest building in West Virginia.
