    Designed by Thomas Jefferson, this Classic Revival building was modeled after a Roman temple. It was completed in 1788 and is the second oldest capitol in continuous use in the country. The focal point of the building is the central rotunda featuring a life-size statue of George Washington, said to be the only one for which he actually posed. A smaller dome displays busts of the eight American presidents from Virginia. The old Hall of the House of Delegates, where the legislature met until 1906, is now a museum. Free tours, lasting about 30 minutes, are offered. Take time to stroll the Capitol grounds and see the nearby Executive Mansion.
