This Greek Revival building served as the Arkansas State Capitol until the  current State Capitol Building opened. It is currently a museum of Arkansas history and culture. Inside, the pair of symetrical curved wood staircases are beautiful, dynamic sculptures. Not bad for being over 175 years old.

When in Little Rock and looking for a place for dinner, if you are up for a fun and colorful place, go to Dizzy’s Gypsy Bistro
