Capitol Building

Hotels near Capitol Building, Lincoln (Nebraska), United States .

The state of Nebraska has its capital city in Lincoln, and within Lincoln the state's capitol building (administrative center) is located at 1445 K Street, essentially in the middle of the city. The capitol building is quite unique in its structure, and it was the first state capitol building in the country at the time that it was built to have deviated from the classical domed style of the nation's capitol to attempt something new and more original, including an office tower into such a structure for the first time. It happens to be the heaviest state capitol building in the US.

The structure, which had been designed by New York architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, who won a national competition to have the honor, was actually built over a ten year period between 1922 and 1932, and since completion it has been pretty common to refer to the gigantic building as the Tower of the Plains. There are free tours arranged for members of the public which last between half an hour and fifty-five minutes, starting a the 2nd floor north entrance. Find out more by visiting the Nebraska state capital official site at http://www.capitol.org/plan_tour/home_plan.html. Also, you can learn more about this unique building and landmark by visiting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebraska_State_Capitol.

The city of Lincoln offers visitors many places at which to find accommodations during one's stay, and among the many options it is worth pointing out the Atwood House B&B, the Suburban Extended Stay Hotel and the Cornshucker Marriott Hotel.
