Our first stop in Alaska was Juneau, the capital city. We disembarked and walked a few blocks to the building located right in the center of the small town. We watched a video on the capital and then a tour guide took us around the building which was completed in 1931. There are four columns on the front of the building made of marble from Prince of Whales Island, Alaska. In the lobby there are two sculptures; one depicting the harvest of the land and the other the harvest of the sea. Other carvings in the Capitol depict principle sources of income for the state; oil and gas, fishing, wood products, minerals, tourism, hunting and trapping. Much of the furniture is from the territorial period and the hand stenciled ceiling dates from the time of construction. We also learned about the state flag and the state song.
