Nebraska

And Louisiana

And I think I agree with you about Alaska's
The most unique...as in very similar to Florida's?

Trivia....

The WV. Capital building was designed by architect Cass Gilbert, who later went on to design the United States Supreme Court building, and who designed it's Chamber to be an almost exact duplicate (though larger) of the one in the WV Capital building.

Louisiana's is done in a beautiful art-deco style. Its very, very nice

Florida's disgusts me. Even if it was just an office building in a random city, it would be ugly

Florida's Capitol looks like a Federal Prison. It also looks like a phallus from a distance. I've also heard it was nicknamed "Askew's Erection", named after Gov Reuben Askew.

They ought to move their capital to Orlando and make the Sleeping Beauty Castle the Capitol Building .

Louisiana has an Art Deco history to it, so it's nice to me.

I've always hated Ohio's Capitol, b/c it looks like the dome was never finished.

North Dakota's Capitol looks like a mental institution.

I used to live in MS, so would pass the Capitol all the time...it looks very nice in person.

Whoever said that Hawaii's looks like a library built in the 60's is SO spot on.

New Mexico's cap makes sense in Santa Fe's environment. It does look a bit like a suburban megachurch though.
