The Ohio Statehouse is one of America's finest examples of Greek Revival architecture and is one of the oldest working statehouses in the United States. The Ohio Statehouse was completed in 1861 after 22 years of construction. The sweeping grand staircase of the Senate Building was modeled after the Paris Opera House. Restored to its original grandeur in 1996, the Statehouse is filled with priceless amazing historic art, including a marble bust of Abraham Lincoln - the only one the President posed for during his lifetime. Even the Statehouses expansive grounds have a history, as Civil War Union soldiers frequently camped there.
