Alabama is just kinda.. meh. I don't hate it necessarily, but nothing about it really stands out either. I've seen worse, but there are far better.

Nobody has mentioned Rhode Island's State Building. The dome of the State House is the fourth-largest self-supporting marble dome in the world

Wikipedia - Built at a time when Rhode Island was one of the wealthiest states by per capita income, construction of the State House priced $3 million at the turn of the century. Today, the cost would be over $1 billion.The building is neo-classical style on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Tennessee state capitol, Nashville. It may not be the most attractive, but at least it's not just another domed knock-off of the national capitol in DC. But as far as domed knock-offs go, I have to admit that the Iowa capitol is gorgeous.

Anyway, here's Tennessee's interesting and different capitol building:

I live in Sacramento, CA and have been to the capital numerous times. it is a really nice building in a beautiful park in the middle of downtown. the building doesn't quite compare to that of Colorado or Connecticut but it beats Hawaii's or Alaska's by far.
