The Vermont State House is one of the oldest and best preserved of our nation's state capitols. After nearly 160 years it remains an icon in Montpelier, the smallest capital city in America.

This architectural gem is also home to some of the state’s most important art. As you tour this remarkable piece of living history, you will develop a sense of what makes this building, and the state for which it was built, unique.
