This is the 4th Kentucky State Capitol building. It opened in 1910 and replaced the previous one built in 1830, which still stands in downtown Frankfort.
I lived in Frankfort for over 20 years so it still feels like home when I visit even though I moved away several years ago.
Since I was killing time waiting for the archives to open, I didn't have enough time to go inside. I will save that for another day.
