Vermont State House, Montpelier

(4.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
The Vermont State House, located in Montpelier, is the state capitol of Vermont, in the United States. It is the seat of the Vermont General Assembly. The current Greek Revival structure is the third building on the same site to be used as the State House. Designed by Thomas Silloway in 1857–1858, it was occupied in 1859.A careful restoration of the Vermont State House began in the early 1980s led by curator David Schütz and the Friends of the Vermont State House, a citizens' advisory committee. The general style of the building is Neoclassical and Greek Revival and is furnished in American Empire, Renaissance Revival, and Rococo Revival styles. Some rooms have been restored to represent latter-19th-century styles including the "Aesthetic Movement" style.The Vermont State House is located on State Street on the western edge of downtown Montpelier, a block north of the Winooski River. Set against a wooded hillside (which was open pasture land earlier during much of its history), the building and its distinctive gold leaf dome are easily visible while approaching Montpelier, the smallest city to serve as capital of a U.S. state.

  • We enjoyed a visit to the Vermont Capitol especially because of the knowledgeable tour guide. A beautiful visual and learning experience.
  • Beautiful building with a picturesque lawn and self-guided tours inside.
  • fatso is very nocr balo
  • Smaller Capitol building compared to Texas Capitol!! Worth visiting
  • Was suprised how much the two nine-year-olds I brought enjoyed this tour. They set us up with the listening wands and maps and we went off on our own. It was a great tour for a cold day and it felt like a privilege to be able to go through the building on our own. Very nice!
