Jefferson City, Missouri

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our next stop was Jefferson City, Missouri.  We stayed at Binder Lake Campground which was run by the county.  It was a small campground, but near a great lake which we walked around.  We toured the Missouri State Capitol building.  The first two capitol buildings that were built in Jefferson City both burned.  The present building is built of Missouri’s Carthage limestone marble and was completed in 1918.  When funds were raised for this Capitol they had one million dollars extra and then spent it on art and it really is apparent.  The house lounge has a mural, “A Social History of Missouri” by Thomas Hart Benton.  Our favorite was a painting of the Eads Bridge by Frank Bernard Nuderscher which changed perspective depending on the angle it was viewed.  The Capitol’s first floor is home to the Missouri State Museum.  We were planning to do some bike riding on the Katy Trail, but the weather did not cooperate so we spent some time doing school work and playing games.
