Completed in 1840, this National Historic Landmark is one of the best-preserved examples of a civic building in Greek Revival-style architecture. It originally housed the governor's office, cabinet offices, legislative chambers, state library and state geologist's office.
The North Carolina State Capitol will close to the public beginning Wed., May 3, for construction and repair work, and will remain closed until further notice. Work is underway to replace copper on the roof and dome, update the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and repair deteriorating mortar and stone on the building’s exterior. The work is expected to take 12-15 months to complete and is being managed by the N.C. General Assembly’s Legislative Services Office.
