The Michigan State Capital building is the third capital building in our state. When the state capital was moved from Detroit to Lansing a temporary capital building was built. The permanent capital building was built by architect Elijah E Myers from 1872-1878 in the Renaissance or Classic Revival style. The building was one of the first state capitals to be adorned by a beautiful cast iron dome. Inside the main floor rotunda is a beautiful and impressive view of the dome’s ornate interior. The building opened January 1st of 1879 and has been in use since.Located in the heart of Lansing, business and commerce has grown around the capital.
