Spectacular, sprawling live oak tree outside Louisiana's Old State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge, which dates to 1852 and served as the seat of state government for 80 years. Designed by architect James Dakin, it now serves as a museum. Rather than mimic the national Capitol Building in Washington, as many other states had done, Dakin conceived a Neo-Gothic medieval-style castle overlooking the Mississippi. Fire destroyed most of the building during the U.S. Civil War of the 1850s. In 1882, it was rebuilt from scratch by architect William Freret, who installed the spiral staircase and stained-glass dome that are interior focal points.
