The Washington State Capitol stands on a hill overlooking the southern tip of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, for which the city of Olympia was named. Designed in a mixture of Roman, Greek and neo Classical style made popular by the "City Beautiful" movement of the late 1800's, it is often compared to our nation�s Capitol. Constructed between 1922 and 1928, the Capitol Building houses the Washington State Legislature as well as the offices of the Governor, Lt. Governor, Sec. of State and Treasurer. Posted by Picasa
