Standing proudly both as a historic state symbol and a place of work, the New Jersey State House is the seat of government for the state of New Jersey. The building houses the Office of the Governor, the New Jersey Senate, and New Jersey General Assembly. It also contains the offices of the Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey and various state government departments.

Located at the heart of Trenton, New Jersey, the State House is the second oldest state house that is still in use, after the Maryland State Capitol. It was completed in 1792 and got minor renovations and additions during the 19th century. The Senate wing of the complex was fitted with American Renaissance architectural style in 1889. In 1999, the ?Dimes for the Dome? fund-raising project for dome renovation was initiated. Children contributed $1 for each gold leaf used on the dome.
