We entered the capitol through the hand carved doors at the main entrance on North Boulevard to behold the remarkable rotunda. After the Civil War in 1882, the ruined interior was renovated by architect and engineer William Freret who installed the grand cast-iron staircase and the stained glass dome to emit more light. A single ornate central pier was included to support the dome; resembling a grand umbrella of painted glass. The checkerboard floor of the rotunda is fossilized marble. It was a positively breath-taking sight. Well done Mr. Freret!
