The Colorado State Capitol Building

The Colorado State Capitol Building

Camelot
Designed by Elijah E. Myers, the Colorado State Capitol Building was constructed of local white granite in the 1890s. The golden dome, plated with real gold, was added in 1908 to commemorate the Colorado Gold Rush. The building's site, part of the Civic Center and serving as the beginning of the Capitol Hill district, sits slightly above the rest of downtown Denver. Modeled by Crystal V.
