Context/Comments
The most imposing public building in the state, this is a very large, three-story stone building, loosely modeled after the United States Capitol. The building is dominated by an elegant monumental portico and a massive colonnaded dome. A major restoration was begun in 1979 and completed about 1982. [HABS: MS-191 (1972)]
