Two centuries ago, the golden dome of Massachusetts' capitol building took the place of the original beacon that lit up this historic hill. The monumental brick structure (1798, Charles Bulfinch) endures as a sparkling Boston landmark. The interior is embellished with murals, stained glass, columns, mosaic floors and carved Honduran mahogany paneling. Note the Hall of Flags and the oval House of Representatives chamber, where you'll find the wooden Sacred Cod, a symbol of Boston's fishing prosperity.
