4 Nebraska State Capitol Building in Lincoln, Nebraska

The first two Nebraska state capitols followed traditional styles but crumbled from poor construction. The third building, finished in Lincoln in 1932, resulted in a 15 story skyscraper. The nontraditional design inspired the capitol towers in North Dakota, Louisiana and Florida. At its 362 foot peak is a bronze statue called, “The Sower” featuring a barefoot man sprinkling the seeds of life. Below it is the eight-sided Memorial Chamber filled with realistic murals of the state’s history. Nebraska became the 37th state on March 1, 1867.
