Rhode Island was the 1st Capitol that I visited since purchasing my Capitol Passport Book. To date (JULY 3), I have visited 5 state capitols. RI rank among my favorite thus far… I love its striking likeness to the US Capitol in Washington, DC
The building had an awesome self guided tour pamphlet, and was worth the visit!
This was the 38th capitol I have visited. Standing in front of the podium in the 2nd floor state reception room was fun. The staircases in the State House Library were amazing.
