Northfield, Vermont
Vermont State House

(1 of 125)


Located in Montpelier, VT (8 miles from Northfield)

This gem of a capitol is as open and accessible as one would expect in a state of small towns and villages. The Senate Chamber has elliptical curves and replicated carpet and drapes from the mid-19th century. Representatives Hall is the largest chamber in the State House—restored to its late-1850s splendor. Two stained glass skylights help to illuminate the Cedar Creek Room—with one that features the state coat of arms. "Lincoln" by Brattleboro-born sculptor Larkin Goldsmith Mead, dominates the main lobby of the State House. "View of Montpelier" by James Franklin Gilman (1885) shows the red roof and dome of the 19th century.
