Louisiana State Capitol Building

Completed in 1932, the Louisiana State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge is the tallest capital building in America.

The 450-foot, 34-story limestone building was constructed by recommendation of Huey Long, who became governor during its completion.

After the completion, he was fatally wounded in the building and is buried and memorialized in the Capitol Gardens.

The building was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1982 and is a staple of plantation country.
