Pennsylvania State Capitol.

 

After the night stay at Marrriott, Harrisburg we headed straight to Pennsylvania State Capitol, seat of Pennsylvania Government in Harrisburg town. The Capitol building is truly majestic and is close to the Susquehanna river.

Harrisburg played a very important role in American history and the US Navy ship USS Harrisburg is named after it. During the mid 1920’s this town became one of the most industrialised cities in US.

The Capitol building houses the Legislative Chamber, Superior Courts of Pennsylvania and offices of Lt Governor and Governor.

Since we reached there on Saturday all offices were closed but still our Guide along with the Capitol staff was able to show us most of it.

It definitely is a must see monument.
