  • I really wish I were better with names and paying attention... Regardless. There was a delightful lady when I entered the Statehouse on 10/20/2021 right at midday. Her enthusiasm and knowledge including the general history and the materials used for the floor and stairwells was top notch. We had a good chat in general about state capitals including my own state of Illinois. In any case, if you could get this review back to her, she has really stood out as a top highlight of any of the 18 capitals I have had the chance to visit thus far.
  • My son and I visited the Wyoming State Capitol during a recent road trip and were very impressed with how lovely and well-maintained the building is. The people of Wyoming can be justifiably proud of this magnificent public building. As far as the statuary is concerned, I was most impressed with the buffalo (aka bison) statue on the capitol grounds. It gives the pair of buffalo statues in the Manitoba Provincial Capitol building a run for their money. Which is better? You decide!
