This marble building houses lawmakers, Revolutionary War artifacts and the world's fourth-largest, self-supporting dome. – The Scene
Historic artifacts abound at this local legislators' workplace, including the original Rhode Island Charter of 1663 and Revolutionary War-era flags and guns.

The Best
The world's fourth-largest, self-supported marble dome tops the vestibule of the Georgian-style capitol building. It's almost like a New England version of the Taj Mahal or St. Peter's Basilica. A huge mural of Roger Williams founding Providence decorates the dome's interior.

The Rest
Though modeled after the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., the statue of the "Independent Man" atop the dome is a Rhode Island exclusive. Designed by the New York architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White, the construction of the building, terrace and adjacent grounds was completed in 1901.
