Completed in 1910, this is the new state capitol. Built in the neo-classic style, with 70 ionic columns, it shows Kentucky as a heroine, with five attendants: Progress, History, Law, Art, and Labor. The rotunda was influenced by that of Les Invalides in Paris (where Napoleon is entombed). This is one of the country's most attractive capitol buildings.
One of its unusual features is the Floral Clock. It's 34 feet across, and covered with thousands of flowers.
