Built in 1788, the Virginia State Capitol building is part of U.S. history. Thomas Jefferson selected the ancient Roman temple Maison Carrée at Nimes in southern France as the model for the building's design.
The building has been renovated during the years, including the addition of two wings between 1904 and 1906 and updated electrical and air-conditioning systems between 1962 and 1964.
