Capitol Ohio : 128 - Statehouse Exterior
The Ohio Statehouse has been termed a supreme example of Greek Revival style. Because the city-states of Ancient Greece were the birthplace of democracy, the style had great meaning in the young American nation.
More than a century and a half old, the Ohio Statehouse has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior. This honor recognizes the long history of the building and the continued role it will have in the life and lawmaking of the state of Ohio.
