Vermont is one of the pioneer states during the early days of the United States as a democratic country. Throughout its history, Vermont has earned a reputation as a center of popular government. Embodying this popular ideal is Vermont?s seat of government, the Vermont State House, usually referred to as ?the People?s House?.

Vermont State House is a Greek Revival-modeled building located at the capital city of Montpelier, Vermont. It houses the Vermont General Assembly. Set against a wooded hillside, the capitol and its famous gold leaf dome can be seen from afar, making it a perfect welcoming vista to anyone entering Montpelier.

The People?s House is open to the public with very few restrictions. The Representative Hall is used for concerts called ?Farmer?s Nights? during winter. The Vermont Symphony Orchestra conducts concerts during warmer months. The State House was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
