Ranking The State Capitols

That’s Capitols, not Capitals. Here, the Geography King gives us his assessments of all 50 states’ Capitol buildings, and ranks them based on his architectural and design preferences. Not so shocking, but the biggest states — including New York, California and Texas — all stand out and rank quite high. They have large populations and they have spent hefty sums building lavish seats of government. But none of them come out on top.

You’ll have to watch to see which state wins, but we’ll give you a clue. Here, in alphabetical order, are the three highest-ranked state Capitols: Connecticut, Iowa and Pennsylvania. Also placing among the finalists: West Virginia, whose state Capitol has the most awesome domes!
