They’ve arranged rooms to resemble what they were in years past. The room above is the geology room. We love it … Continue reading »

America’s Historic Triangle

Located in Virginia: Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown are known as America’s Historic Triangle. We spent two weeks here, but really only scratched the surface of what there is to see and do.

Connecticut

We spent one week in Connecticut. The State Capitol Building is impressive. The dome was beautiful. You know I’m a sucker for a good dome. I love this one! The architecture was interesting. I’m also a sucker for a good staircase. There were stained glass windows and richly painted walls. It’s called the Charter Oak Chair. … Continue reading »

Newport Rhode Island

We spent one very long, very busy week in the Newport area of Rhode Island. This post is going to be picture heavy. I tried to scale it down, but honestly, I could do a separate post for each of the Newport Mansions. I don’t have time to do that though, so y’all will just … Continue reading »

I usually break these kinds of posts up, but I’m going to smash it all into one this time! Are you ready? We spent a day in Salem, … Continue reading »

I’m combining the New Hampshire and Maine State Capitol Building posts. We only spent a night in New Hampshire on our way through to Maine, but don’t worry…we’re going to be doing some more things in New Hampshire on our way back down the coast. Yup, the dome is covered. Dang. I’m sure it’s a … Continue reading »

Montpelier, VT

Remember back in the Albany post how I told you I had several State Capitol Building posts to do? Montpelier is number two of four. Vermont has the smallest State Capitol City. It’s tiny. The dome you see on the building is covered with 23.7 carat gold leaf. I had high hopes for this building. It … Continue reading »
