We toured the State House with our Watermark Walking Tours. Architecture and history was interesting.

Trip Advisor Interesting Facts and Figures

Love how they've kept some of the rooms the same way as 50-60 years ago. We took a guided tour and learned a lot of facts and figures. George Washington's original 1 page speech is kept there. It's one of the few working capital buildings in the country. Definitely worth the tour.

Trip Advisor Not Very Impressive Inside
Sep 14, 2014 by: Rick C from Nashville, Tennessee
Although it is one of the oldest state houses in the country, there is not much to see inside. It is a beautiful building from outside, but visitors are only limited to the main floor of the building where you can see the Senate chamber and the House chamber. However, you can only peek into the rooms because they are cordoned off. There are no guided tours to show you the rest of the building. The highlight is an original copy of Washington's letter of resignation from the Continental Army. Overall, it took 20 minutes to see all they have to show.

Trip Advisor Historic

The State Capitol and immediately surrounding governmental area are attractive and historic. The State House goes back to 1772 and has very attractive chambers for State and the House of Delegates.

Trip Advisor Capital

Very historical and able to see the Senate and House rooms. There was a room that had a mannequin of George Washington in his military uniform. It had a nice display about the building of the dome.
