Maine’s Capitol – Simple Yet Elegant

When I arrived at Maine’s State Capitol building which is in Augusta, Maine, I immediately felt like I was in Maine with this seal to greet me.  The capitol building itself was very simple and yet elegant.  As I was exploring the inside, I managed to capture the view looking out one of the beautiful windows.

As you can see, the capitol sits on a hill so there is quite a view out the window.

The dome from the inside is not decorated like many, but you can see below just how simple, yet elegant, it looks.inside dome

I love the windows in The House of Representatives which is pictured below.

Likewise, the senate had the same shape of windows and was also in keeping with the entire theme of simple yet elegant.

Last, but certainly not least, is the view from outside, and the dome is a brown shade!
