Attractions

Modeled after the venerated United States Capitol, the Colorado State Capitol is a neoclassical beauty constructed using Colorado white granite. Standing exactly one mile above sea level, the building meticulously epitomizes Colorado's Gold Rush through the Gold Leaf on its striking dome. Quintessential illustrations on the stained glass windows further immortalize the capitol's respect for the state it calls home. The Colorado State Capitol hosted its first general assembly in 1894, and it was inscribed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
