Nebraska State Capitol

The Nebraska State Capitol, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, is the capitol and seat of the Nebraska Legislature and houses other offices of the government of the U.S. state of Nebraska. It is one of the most distinctive statehouses in the United States. It is 400 feet (121 m) tall. There is an observation deck at 250 feet (76 m). There are 15 floors. It is the 3rd tallest building in the state, and the tallest in Lincoln, Nebraska. This capitol building's height is surpassed only by the Louisiana State Capitol. The Louisiana State Capitol is 34 stories but was influenced by the Nebraska State Capitol's design.
The building was designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue and constructed between 1922 and 1932. The Indiana limestone structure draws on both Classical and Gothic architectural traditions, but represents major innovations in state capitol design (Wiki).
