North Dakota State Capitol Building, Bismarck

4.4
The North Dakota State Capitol is the house of government of the U.S. state of North Dakota. The Capitol, a 21 story tower, is in Bismarck at 600 East Boulevard Avenue, on a 160acre campus that is the site of many other government buildings. The capitol building and the surrounding office buildings house the state's legislative and judicial branches, as well as many government agencies.
The State Capitol is largely surrounded by state government buildings. The parks, walking trails, and monuments on the grounds give visitors information about the state's history, making it one of the city's tourist attractions. Six buildings exist on the grounds; all built during various time periods as the government grew. Not all state agencies are housed on the grounds, however: a large number are spread throughout the city in various facilities. Plans for a massive expansion and improvement of the grounds were developed in 2000, but very little of the plan has been implemented as of 2012.

  • The wood in the building is beautiful! I enjoyed seeing the beautiful design. The Monkey Room is a treasure that will not be seen anywhere else.  more »

  • As junior high students people within our age group gathered as many as 100 kids all summer long, skating, biking, frisbee, or just went to see who was around since we had no CELLPHONES!!
  • Somewhat unique among capitol buildings in the United States with its high-rise design, the grounds are still very attractive and the capitol stately.
