Missouri State Capitol

The Missouri State Capitol is the building that houses the legislative and executive branches of the government of the U.S. state of Missouri, as well as the Missouri General Assembly. Located in Jefferson City at 201 West Capitol Avenue, it is the third capitol in the city after the other two were demolished following a fire. The domed building was designed by the New York architectural firm of Tracy and Swartwout and was completed in 1917.

The Capitol's dome, which rises 238 feet (73 m) above ground level and topped by a bronze statue of Ceres the Roman goddess of agriculture, rises above the bluffs of the Missouri River and is the first view of Jefferson City for travelers arriving from the north. In addition to housing the two legislative bodies and the two houses, the Capitol houses offices for the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state treasurer, state auditor, and some administrative agencies.
