Rotunda Granite Benches

Visit the Capitol Rotunda and take a seat on one of the exquisite granite benches while you view the murals and reflect upon the history that surrounds you. The benches were the Foundation’s first project.

Eight black granite benches matching the second floor walls of the Rotunda were added to the Capitol Rotunda first floor on May 4, 2009, expanding the seating capacity for the public from 12 to 40 people. With the additional seating, Capitol visitors are able to sit and view the historic murals that cover the second floor walls of the Rotunda.
