Jefferson City Missouri
The Missouri state Capitol is more than just the seat of government. It is an extraordinary collection of stained glass, murals, carvings and statuary portraying Missouri's history, legends and cultural achievements. A guided tour is recommended to fully experience this monument to Missouri, but visitors can explore the four floors of the Capitol by themselves. A block away, Jefferson Landing State Historic Site is significant as a rare surviving Missouri River landing. The Lohman Building, built in 1839, is a sturdy stone structure that served as a tavern and hotel, and in its heyday also housed one of the city's largest warehouse and mercantile businesses. Today, the main floor contains a visitor center with exhibits on the city's history. The building also serves as the support facility for the Missouri State Museum, located on the ground floor of the Capitol.
