Massachusetts State House, Boston

Located in Beacon Hill, the downtown neighborhood of Boston, this State House is situated in one of the best areas for daily visitors. As you walk across the Boston Common, you can’t help but notice yet another gold dome standing proudly overlooking the downtown metropolis.

The history of the Massachusetts State Capitol dates back to 1798 on a 6.7-acre plot of land owned by its former governor John Hancock. The infamous dome, a vital feature of this state capitol, was initially made wooden, but Paul Revere’s company blanketed the dome in copper. The dome was painted in gold leaf in 1874 to provide it with the look you see today.
