Utah's Capitol Called 'Great Place To Walk Through History'

USA Today Travel has this interesting article about capitol buildings in the 50 US states.

Author Jim Stembridge says statehouses are bona-fide tourist attractions - working museums of regional art and history. "They don't have water slides or video games, but they are great."

Stembridge visited all 50 state capitols to research his article. In the article he lists 10 buildings that he considers great. Utah's capitol building in Salt Lake City is listed first. Here's a quote from the article:

This statehouse recently underwent a complete renovation, expansion and retrofit, providing protection from earthquakes. Stembridge likes the natural light, new statuary, and visitor center and gift shop. "It's spick-and-span," he says. The interior also depicts historic scenes of Mormon settlement. 801-538-3074;
