Description
The Massachusetts State House, located in Boston, Massachusetts, USA is the seat of government for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Located in the Boston neighborhood of Beacon Hill, the building houses the Massachusetts General Court and the offices of the Governor of Massachusetts. The building sits on 6.7 acres (27,000 m²) of land on top of Beacon Hill in Boston. It is the oldest remaining building in that location. The original wood dome, which leaked, was covered with copper in 1802. It was first painted gray and then light yellow before being gilded with gold leaf in 1874. The dome is topped with a pine cone representing the importance of the lumber industry to the early New England economy. In front of the building is an equestrian statue of General Joseph Hooker. Other statues in front of the building include Daniel Webster, educator Horace Mann, and former US President John F. Kennedy. The statues of Anne Hutchinson and Mary Dyer are located on the lawns below the east and west wings. The original red-brick Bulfinch building contains the Governor\'s offices (on the west end) with the Massachusetts Senate occupying the former House of Representatives Chamber under the dome. The Massachusetts House of Representatives occupies a chamber on the west side of the Brigham addition. Hanging over this chamber is the Sacred Cod, which was given to the House of Representatives in 1784 by a Boston merchant. The Sacred Cod symbolizes the importance of the fishing industry to the early Massachusetts economy.
