State Capitols are often the most beautiful and oldest of buildings. After all, they have to represent the grandeur, tradition, history and legacy of the state. Like all states, Nebraska has its own State Capitol that makes every local Nebraskan beam with joy and pride.
Located at the capital of Lincoln, the Capitol with the iconic 400-foot tower is a state landmark and a 1976 National Historic Place. Designed by Bertram Goodhue and built from 1922 to 1932, the Indiana limestone building incorporated several symbolic elements to go with its Gothic and Classical architecture. The tallest building in Lincoln at 15 floors, the Capitol houses the Nebraska Legislature and other government offices of the state of Nebraska.
The State Capitol is notable for its iconography, particularly the portrayal of American Indian and mythological motifs. Sculptures of world history?s ?great lawgivers? also adorn the building.
