Several times in the 1960’s, I got to go to our Capitol. The first time it was on my honeymoon to Paul. The second was to see it all with some of my best friends and George. No, I didn’t make it to every museum. I tried. But I met friends at the museums, at the Union Train station for lunch, and the Capitol building with blogger ThomaS.
Yes, the restaurant is good, the building monumental, but the tour we were on didn’t take us to the galleries. It did take us to the Old House Chambers which now house the state sculptures. There are plaques on the floor that show where our Representatives once sat. Around the outer walls, are now displayed sculptures, one from each state, of an important person in the history of that state.
Many of us have not been to this space. I didn’t go until 2012. The rioters crowded through in 2021 as if they lived there. I thought I’d show you a view of it as I saw it those few years ago.
Here’s ThomaS in his red vest.
