Best Local Architectural Treasure 

Idaho State Capitol

Readers' Picks

There's at least one landmark that's been with Boise since its earliest days of statehood: the Idaho State Capitol. Its stunning columned rotunda, painted inside with a starry blue sky and Roman-themed building at the northern tip of Capitol Boulevard is the valley's treasure. Styled by John Tourtellotte and Charles Hummel, the sandstone exterior was mined near Table Rock, and the marble is Italian and American. With a recent, major facelift, the scagliola is destined to glisten for a long, long time.
