  • For those that aren't aware, the State House is open to the public. I recently went on a guided tour with a group and it was well worth it. They start off with a video providing some history before ac...  more »

  • Very well maintained grounds and obviously pressure washed on a regular basis. Was a great pokè stop spot! Now that all of the pokè stops have been removed the grass seems less green and the Senate house is just a dull grey shell of its former Pokèmon glory.
  • Shot some timelapses here last night. It's a really cool building and a nice area in general. The security personnel was very friendly. They checked in on what we were doing and were fine with it.
  • Very impressive, amazing history. I recommend going on a weekday so you can see real life politicians in their natural habitat. The tour is an hour or you can pick up a brochure and wander around.
  • I honestly just like going here because there are tons of portals for ingress. Took a while but the security is informed and totally ok with all hours visits. My little girl loves to slide down the front rails too ;-)
  • Great views of a historic building. Well lit paths all around. Plenty of benches. Lots of statues and monuments. Has a few PokeStops if that's what you're looking for.
