The Colorado State Capital bears a strong resemblance to our nation’s capitol, including famous street names such as Pennsylvania and Lincoln Avenue. The building was built in the 1890’s and is composed of Colorado white granite. In 1908 the dome was plated in 24 karat gold.
The interior features magnificent brass and stained glass. The dome towers 180 feet above, and contains stained glass dedicated to the 16 initial founders of the city of Denver.
Elevation: 5280 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL
The Colorado State Capitol is open to the public Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
