After walking around the immense new State Capitol Building in Springfield, Illinois I wanted to go inside of course. I would love to go to the top of the rotunda/dome also. They give free tours inside every 30 minutes even on weekends. The inside is glittering with marble floors and walls and moldings each in a different color. This view is down the long hallway leading to the rotunda and grand central stairway. The lights were very dim on this Sunday. It is amazing that this building was constructed in 1868.
