Oklahoma State Capitol

Michelin Guide
The Michelin Guide's review
This is the only capitol building in the world with working oil wells on its grounds. "Petunia," erected in the middle of a flower bed in 1941, and six sister wells have generated more than $8 million in revenue since they were first drilled. With 650 rooms, the Greco-Roman building of limestone, granite and marble features history murals and portraits of famous Oklahomans. Built in 1914-17, the capitol was not crowned with the dome that its original design called for; work to correct that "oversight" began in 1999 and finished on statehood day, November 16, 2002.
