The Massachusetts Statehouse is located in Boston and was designed by architect Charles Bulfinch. It has been enlarged since its completion in 1798 and is a true masterpiece in Federal Architecture. Its location is on 67 acres of land once owned by John Hancock and has the typical statehouse dome on top. This dome, originally made of wood, was covered in copper in 1802 before being covered by gold in 1874 but was stripped of the gold until it was re-gilded in 1997. On top of the dome there is a golden pinecone that represents the importance of the lumber industry in the state.
