It is not patterned on one single building, but is a combination of stylistic elements from Greek sources, melded with contemporary needs and functions. Built between 1839 and 1861, it is one of the oldest working statehouses in the United States. (Submitted on March 12, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
