Charlestown Souvenir: West Virginia State Capital on Acrylic Fridge Magnet

Displayed on the fridge magnet above is the top of the West Virginia State Capitol that is home to the Governor of West Virginia as well as the Legislature of the state. This building is established in Charlestown in West Virginia and was declared a historic site in the National Register of Historic Places. The building has a magnificent architecture and is in a grayish white tone with its dome painted in golden and gray; the dome is also one of the main highlights of the State Capitol. This lovely magnet has a neat acrylic finishing and is an apt keepsake of this structure.

Establishment of the West Virginia State Capitol

Prior to the establishment of the current State Capitol of West Virginia, numerous cities of the state had served as its State Capitol. The building we see today was built in almost 8 years under the supervision of Cass Gilbert who was the chief architect of the establishment project. The State Capitol was created in 3 main stages: its West Wing was constructed between 1924 and 1925, its East Wing was created between 1926 and 1927, and the stunning rotunda that links both the west and east sections was built during 1932. The total expenses incurred in the creation of the West Virginia State Capitol were around $9,491,180.

Building and Design of the State Capitol

The State Capitol is spread over an area of 530,000 square feet and contains three hundred and thirty three rooms. The walls on the inside of the building are made using Imperial Danby, and white Vermont marble along with Italian travertine are used in the floors; and the exterior of the structure is created using buff Indiana limestone. A beautiful chandelier is hanging from the rotunda with the aid of a fifty four feet long chain made of bronze and brass.
