“Rhode Island’s State House was built between 1895 and 1904. It has 327,000 cubic feet of white Georgia marble, 15,000,000 bricks, and 1,309 tons of iron floor beams. At night, the building glows beautifully from 109 floodlights, which help to make it visible to neighboring cities and towns.
The State House dome is the fourth largest, self-supported marble dome in the world.
The largest is St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the second largest is the Minnesota State Capitol and the third largest is the Taj Mahal in India. On the inside of the dome, there is a wonderful painting, “The Four Freedoms” by Rhode Island artist James Allen King.”
