Inscription. In 1931, when Governor Huey Long commissioned America's tallest state capitol, he probably never guessed he'd be assassinated inside it four years later. Note how the structure's friezes, marble-work and statuary are as elaborate as the political negotiations that occur within its walls. The beautiful lobby murals of the capitol annex, across the street, and the 27th floor observation deck of the capitol itself are both open to the public. (Marker Number 5.)
