Maine State House, Augusta, ME (11-14-2018)

Continuing my quest to visit all fifty state capitols, I made the drive up from Boston to Augusta for my 27th State Capitol. Unfortunately, today was a holiday and the building was sealed up tight. Still, the grounds are beautiful and the building itself is a marvel to appreciate.

The Maine State House was designed by the same architect as the Massachusetts State House. Which is appropriate because until 1820, Maine was actually a part of Mass until they split off to become their own state. The building is made from local Maine granite, much of it quarried nearby in Hallowell ME.

It’s worth a visit, more so if they were open for tours. Plenty of free parking nearby.
