I spent some time in Minnesota this June/July. As I was passing through St. Paul I was able to get this picture of the Minnesota State Capitol building. This is a quick pic taken from a moving car. I wasn't driving!! Built in 1905, designed by Cass Gilbert and patterned after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, the Capitol is a beautiful old building and is visited by many school children each year as part of their Minnesota history studies in fifth grade. Thanks Miss Medchill!
