In 1832, the Maine State House was built with granite on Weston Hill. Most of the capital building was demolished and rebuilt in 1911. The exceptions are this portico and a few walls. Similar to California, the state house has a statue of Minerva at its peak. She was the Roman goddess of wisdom and commerce. After a restoration in 2014, the green cooper dome seen here became brown again like it was in 1910. It is expected to stay that shade for the next three decades.
