Now part of the campus of Georgia Military College, this awe-inspiring structure is the oldest standing state capitol in the South to my knowledge and one of the most unique in the nation.

When I lived in Milledgeville, walking around the grounds of the capitol was one of my favorite things to do.

Georgia’s Old Capital Museum is a wonderful resource for information about tours, history, and anything else you might want to know. They’re presently in the process of relocating.

    It is a unique and fascinating structure Brian. I believe it and the old LA state house are the only two gothic revival state capitols in the country.
