Old State Capitol--page 2 (of 2 pages)

Willis Ritchie

This complex of buildings occupies the entire block. Pictured below are other buildings in this complex. Most have their own frontal facades but some may be joined together. All have rough-cut masonry and Romanesque Revival details.

Like the main building, this one has a widely splayed arched opening, some arched windows, and varied fenestration.

Building in far corner on the side of the block complex of buildings

This building has a round bay in the corner and an large triple portal entrance with arches supported by squatty columns (another quality often seen in Richardson's buildings). The capitals are carved with foliate motifs and grotesque heads.
