Utah State Capitol
Lonely Planet review for Utah State Capitol
The 1916 Utah State Capitol, modeled after the US capitol, cost an amazing $2.7 million to build back in the day. After six years, and 500 cherry trees, a full renovation of the building and grounds was completed in 2007. Look for colorful Works Progress Administration (WPA) murals of pioneers, trappers and missionaries adorning part of the building's dome. Free hourly tours (from 9am to 4pm) start at the 1st-floor visitor center.
