Downtown Providence featuring the Rhode Island State House at the center. The Rhode Island State House was built in 1904, designed by McKim, Mead & White. The building's self-supporting marble dome is the fourth-largest of its kind in the world. The State House's design follows a Classical and Renaissance style, and features several expansive skylights, Renaissance-inspired ceilings, and ornate interior decorations. Here we see it at sunset, with an odd orange glow upon the usual stark white of its being.
