North Carolina State Capitol Building, Raleigh, North Carolina
USA
The North Carolina State Capitol was completed in 1840 at a cost of $532,682.34 and is one of the finest and best-preserved examples of a major civic building in the Greek Revival style of architecture. It is a National Historic Landmark. In 1792, Raleigh became North Carolina's permanent seat of government. A simple, two-story brick State House was built on Union Square between 1792 and 1796. This original building burned in 1831 and David Paton (1801-1882), an architect from Edinburgh, Scotland, who had worked for noted Scottish architect William Playfair and English architect Sir John Sloan, was hired in September 1834 to supervise the Capitol's construction. The governor and lieutenant governor, and their immediate staff, occupy offices on the first floor of the Capitol. This photo is taken is in the Winter time, but the building is more visible because of the lack of leaves on the trees.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
