Located at the corner of Beacon and Park Street, the "new" State House is the seat of government for Massachusetts.
The building was finished in 1798 and was designed by Charles Bulfinch in the Georgian Neoclassical style. Several additions were made in later years. The gold dome was originally made out of wood shingles and is now copper covered by 23k gold.

Directions: corner of Beacon and Park Streets
