2 Colorado State Capitol Building in Denver, Colorado

The impressive ribbed dome of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver is plated with 200 ounces of gold in honor of the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush from 1858 – 1861. Denver’s nickname as the Mile High City is commemorated by three markers on the 1894 capitol’s steps because the first two measurements of 5,280 feet were incorrect. Colorado became the 38th state on August 1, 1876.
