The Vermont State House, located in downtown Montpelier, is the state capital of Vermont. The Greek Revival style was designed by Thomas Silloway in 1857 and was constructed between 1858-59, it was the third such structure on the site to be used as the State House.
The second State House was nearly destroyed in a fire in January 1857, with only the portico and granite walls salvageable.
In the design of the third State House, Silloway added an additional bay of windows on each side of the central portico and increased the height of the centre dome. The dome was topped with a statue named Agriculture, a representation of Ceres, an ancient Roman goddess of agriculture. It was carved by Vermont artist Larkin Goldsmith Mead.
The Vermont State House underwent extensive renovations in the early 1980’s, led by curator David Schütz.
The Vermont State House is located at 115 State Street in downtown Montpelier.
