Minnesota State Capitol in Saint Paul

St. Paul is the cultural and historic jewel of the Twin Cities. The "crown jewel" of the city is the State Capitol building, designed in 1895 by Cass Gilbert. The elaborate architectural masterpiece features the world's largest unsupported marble dome and the gilded statue Quadriga(The Progress of the State)over the main entrance.

Most family vacation destinations in Minnesota include beautiful family vacation resorts, cabins, and dozens of state parks and many other top family vacations spots.

Mark Twin was impressed on his visit to St. Paul in 1882. He later wrote his classic Life on the Mississippi and stated: "St. Paul is a wonderful town. It is put together in solid blocks of of honest brick and stone and has the air of intending to stay that way." It has!

All that brick and stone, and other materials, created some of the most beautiful, and significant, buildings in Minnesota. You can explore Minnesota's history and it's present attractions by visiting these wonderful edifices.
