AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Built in 1840, the North Carolina State Capitol building is one of the nation's finest examples of Greek Revival architecture. At nearly $533,000, the building's construction cost more than three times the state's general income at the time. While the Capitol originally housed the entire state government, today it serves as the offices of the governor and lieutenant governor. Visitors can take a free self-guided tour through the rotunda, the old legislative chambers and—the highlight, in my opinion—the antique library.
