More from the Old Capitol





When you walk in the front door of the Florida's historic old Capitol, the first thing you see are the stairs. I kind of like the way they looked from the second floor balcony too. The third picture shows what the dome looks like from the inside with the late afternoon sun shining in. You can read a little more about the history of this beautiful place on the sign in the last shot or just enjoy looking at that Spanish moss hanging from the old live oak tree in the background.

Thank you for these great photos. I've seen lots of pictures of the exterior of this building but never any of the interior so I really appreciated your efforts! Looks so calm and peaceful, and so unlike the folks that inhabit the new building!
