Not only is this a big and good looking building it is full of history. This State building call itself, "the building of the people." And that it is. Full of Rhode Island facts and history. One should take advantage of the free tour and the beautiful architecture of this building. The stairway and Library are worth seeing,
As part of our quest to tour all of the U S state capitol buildings, we stopped in Providence to visit Rhode Island’s statehouse.

We planned on doing the self-guided tour, because we arrived too late for the guided tour. However, we ran into the tour after about 10 minutes and joined up with them. We are glad that we did, because the tour guide offered a lot of information that we would have missed.
