This is a rear view of the Nevada State Capital building in Carson City, NV. So many large trees are in the front which makes it hard to get a good view. Construction began between 1869-1871 in Neoclassical Italianate style.
The cornerstone was laid on June 9, 1870. A brass box that served as a time capsule was deposited in the stone. However, which stone is the actual cornerstone is currently unknown. The windows' glass panes are made of 26-ounce (737 g) French crystal, as are those above the doors. Floors and wainscotting are of Alaskan marble, shipped to San Francisco in 20-ton (18,144 kg) blocks and there cut and polished for installation.
Listed in the National Register of Historic places and is historical marker #25.
