The Capitol Believes!
The Arkansas State Capitol Building took 16 years to build, from 1899 to 1915. It was built on the grounds of the Arkansas State Prison. Most of the workers were prisoners who were housed in a dormitory on the property. Our Capitol is a miniature version of the U.S. Capitol.
Santa Pete visited the Capitol Building recently (he parked in the Secretary of State's parking space!). While walking down the steps, he ran into these good people who were visiting from Missouri.
