Home of the Colorado Legislature, our capitol building is one of the key features in the memorable Denver skyline. The capitol building was built in the 1890’s and in 1908 they used 24 karat gold to plate the dome. The gold plated dome commemorates Colorado’s Gold Rush days, and the early pioneers and miners who helped build our great state. The dome towers 180 feet above, and contains stained glass dedicated to the 16 initial founders of the city of Denver. A round brass cap embedded in the west entrance stairway reads: Elevation 5280 Feet, One Mile High, 5-12-69.
