Kansas has a plethora of natural beauty including national parks and historic sites. It is also home to an impressive man-made structure: the state capitol building in Topeka. The building’s dome is several feet taller than the United States Capitol Dome, at a height of 304 feet versus the U.S. capitols at 288 feet. Today, tours are still offered to go to the top of the dome through the fifth floor staircase. Completed in 1903, after over 35 years of construction, it wasn’t until 1988 that the bronze sculpture, by Richard Bergon, was added. The sculpture depicts a Kansas Native American with bow and arrow pointed towards the North Star.
