  • Visited on the weekend, so the inside was closed, but the outside was nice to walk around. The gardens are manicured and there are a few statues to take note of.

  • this is a really beautiful old historic legislative building. You can watch the house and senate in session from the upstairs observatory rooms. Beautiful and historical!

  • The ambassadors (Pat and Maureen) were very friendly and knowledgeable. I was given a tour by Mrs. Pat who was kind enough to do so because I am a volunteer at the MS State Capitol. The MS State Capital is of higher quality and much bigger but capital does have recent renovations that are very nice. The grounds are beautiful and I actually saw a couple on blanket having a picnic. They are renovating gift shop. I was able to purchase pins thanks to Mrs. Vanessa. The history of building and individual portraits are very interesting. Definitely peaked my curiosity. They also have a hall of governors on 2nd floor. The painting on first floor of Battle of Gettysburg is very nice and has a unique history of how it ended up in state house. It peaked my desire to visit Gettysburg, PA. What I truly love about New Hampshire is that they have a system of checks and balances for all branches of government. The old way of politics which worked much better for the people and deterred corruption. The first floor has flags that were carried during military battles. Some are very old but it’s so interesting that they keep and maintain. What I really enjoyed was having opportunity to go into chambers. It is allowed when legislators aren’t in session. This is not allowed in MS State Capital. I highly recommend touring this state house as it will leave you wanted to know more about New Hampshire’s history and those who served in legislature.
  • I visited inside years ago and watched a debate take place on an issue. I don't know what it looks like inside now, but, the outside looks great with the golden dome shining in the sun or lights at night. The grounds look great and are popular. I've sat across the street at the Barley House and had dinner 🍲 outside with the State House for my view. I've had breakfast on a bench in front of the building. I've taken my kids. Christmas 🎄 display is nice. I hope to visit inside again on day. Update: Sunday evening 🌆, December 2021; I still enjoy the Christmas 🎄 decorations and lights at night!
