This is the tallest capitol building in the United States, not the largest as that's in Texas but it is the tallest. It is also unusual in that it was designed in the art deco style rather than classical. It was commissioned by former Governor Huey P Long but he never had a chance to really use it as he was assassinated on the day that it opened. I love the interior detailing but my only wish is that I could capture what I see within one photo instead of seven...it makes me appreciate the human eye.
The view from the top is gorgeous but in order to see it you need to arrive before 4 PM as that's when it closes. Another tip is that you should make sure to eat lunch before seeing the capitol as for some odd reason ( at least during February ) all of the restaurants within walking distance close by 2 PM.
