This building is impressive and certainly a piece of art!

The Rhode Island State House is one of the grandest statehouses in the United States. The design firm was that of McKim, Mead, and White - the same architectural firm that designed the Boston Public Library in 1895 and made renovations to the White House in 1902, along with many others. There is a museum inside of the State House that showcases the Colonial Charter granted in 1663 by King Charles ll of England. The Charter was signed by a monarch to guarantee religious liberty. The building is beautiful and very well maintained. It is in the heart of downtown surrounded by a nice park. On the top of the State House dome is a statue of Rhode Island's Independent Man. It represents the spirit of freedom, of thought, and of action. The building is impressive both inside and outside. It is full of marble and artwork. The library is amazing with 3 stories and the ceiling details are awesome. The murals are beautiful and the paintings of all of the previous governors are inspiring. There is a cannon that was used at Gettysburg and an original painting of George Washington that was done by the great Gilbert Stuart, who was a Rhode Island native. Visitors can take a guided tour or a self-guided tour - either way, it is worth it and awe-inspiring!
