The Ohio Statehouse is the state capitol building and seat of government for the U.S. state of Ohio. The Greek Revival building is located on Capitol Square in Downtown Columbus. The capitol houses the Ohio General Assembly, consisting of the House of Representatives and the Senate. It also contains the ceremonial offices of the governor, lieutenant governor, state treasurer, and state auditor. Built between 1839 and 1861, it is one of the oldest working statehouses in the United States. The statehouse grounds include two other buildings, the Judiciary Annex or Senate Building, and the Atrium; the three are collectively referred to as the Ohio Statehouse into the present day.

The statehouse's prominent architecture has earned it several landmark designations, including as a National Historic Landmark. The building sees about 500,000 visitors per year.

  • Had a very enjoyable guided tour at the Statehouse. Learned so much about the history of the state and of the building. There's a nice cafe inside the statehouse with very reasonably priced tacos.

  • Nice place.. I would consider this as the heart of columbus city. I also loved strolling around this magnificent architecture. Surely picture with a lowly mobile phone cannot do justice. Highly recommended anyway.
  • Ohio has a great Statehouse, beautiful architecture, great spaces, and is both visitor friendly and a great place to work for those who participate in Ohio's government.
