"The new one by the Yankees" State House Tip by Tijavi
State House, Boston: 47 reviews and 87 photos
Further up on Beacon Hill is a grander, much bigger state house - the Massachusetts State House, which retains its original function, that of a state capitol. Construction started almost decades after the declaration of American independence in 1795, based on Charles Bulfinch's design. It is one America's earliest state capitols, and serves as as model for those of other states, particularly its dome. Most importantly, it is served as the model for the US Capitol in Washington DC.
Reservations are needed to enter the capitol, and unfortunately, didn't make any arrangements for it. From outside, it indeed looked grand with the copper-and-gold-sheathed dome shining on a cloudy autumn day.
