The dome atop the Utah State Capitol Building rises an impressive 250 feet. It seems taller as the pinnacle of Capitol Hill. The Neoclassical design was created by German-born Richard K. A. Kletting. He began his architect career in Europe before moving to the United States in 1883. Kletting was responsible for over 25 major commercial and residential projects in Salt Lake City from 1882 through 1915. He has been called the Dean of Utah Architects.
