Designed by Thomas Jefferson, the State Capitol houses America’s oldest legislative assembly. Daily one-hour guided tours showcase historical statuary and paintings, rare exhibit objects, and newly restored legislative chambers. Self-guided tours also are available. And don't miss the Virginia Civil Rights Memorial, unveiled in 2008 at Capitol Square. The Executive Mansion is the oldest continuously occupied governor’s home (since 1813) in the country.
