Facts

  • It is a cruciform building, four stories tall with four similar elevations, and crowned with a 24-carat gold-leaf covered dome. The tripled-arched entrances on each side are topped with triangular pediments with bas-relief sculpture.
  • The ceiling of the dome is 150 feet high.
  • The exterior walls are of Colorado gray granite from Gunnison County. The three stories of the dome are of granite-colored cast iron, used instead of natural stone to save money.
  • Important interior spaces include the rotunda with its murals by local artist Allen Tupper True, the House and Senate chambers, and the old Supreme Court chamber.
  • The interiors feature Beulah red marble and Colorado Yule marble wainscoting and brass fixtures.
  • The Capitol, in a Renaissance Revival style, was inspired by the National Capitol in Washington.
