"This building is beyond comparison, the finest, the most noble and the greatest in all America." This was expressed by a French visitor in year 1796. This is still true to this day.

In the year 1785, Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding father, designed this magnificent structure. He was inspired by the building ‘Maison Carrée de Nimes’ and based it on classical Roman temple design.

The Virginia State Capitol introduced the classical revival temple style to the modern world. This design concept has been carried on by many state capital and public buildings all thru USA.

Our guest speaker Mark Greenough, director of the this building has agreed to give BRMC a personal tour on March 12, 2015 at 4:00pm to 5:30pm.
