tells the story of this state capitol -- how a committee settled on a location, how a new town (Raleigh) was laid out in 1792, and why the "political temple" erected in mid 1800s stands today among the finest examples of civic Greek Revival architecture in the U.S. (National Park Service, Teaching with Historic Places)
