Harrisburg PA

In our trip back from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we stopped in Harrisburg for a wander about and to stretch our legs.

Harrisburg is the PA State Capital and has an interesting Capital area.
The State Capital with a bright green cupola - designed in Beaux Arts style with lots of art.
We could not go in, because there was a wedding planed - but we peaked in and the interior is beautiful

The statue to the right of the main entrance.

The back of the Capital looking down State Street.  Cool.

These are winged griffons stop the pillars.  Very deco.
The back end - where the long street bridge flanked by Assyrian / Deco Griffons looks like it belongs in a European Capital for a Victory parade, not a 1906 designed capital of the Keystone state, but whatever. It was nifty to look at.
