State Capitol Visit

 

Commissioned in 1899 and completed in 1916, the Arkansas State Capitol building was designed as a replica of the US Capitol and is often used as a stand in for it in movies.  Beautiful throughout the year, it particularly shines during the holiday season when it is all decked out in glittery ribbons and bows.  I recently had the opportunity to tour it with my son on a school tour.  We took in the old Supreme Court, the legislature and, of course, the famed rotunda which was complete with a giant tree, golden Santa, and round the clock carolers from area schools.
