In your opinion, what is the least thought of, or least popular state capital.

The last on your list or the one you forget.

My vote goes to Pierre, South Dakota.

Carson City. With Las Vegas and even Reno in the equation CC seems like an afterthought.

I think Providence holds its own in terms of notoriety, not sure why it would be on the list.

Frankfort Ky. When I think of Kentucky I think of Louisville, and that's it.

Not many people even know where Baton Rouge is unless they are SEC fans or City-Data folks.

Most people think NYC is the Capitol of NY. It's Albany.

Tallahassee FL, Annapolis MD, Jefferson City MO, Olympia WA, and Salem OR are way more forgotten than Boise ID, Providence RI, Dover DE, Charleston WV, or Trenton NJ.

I was born in Pierre. Which, little-known fact, is pronounced like "peer," not like the French name. Nothing much goes on there, but it's a beautiful part of the country and the capitol building itself is one of my favorites.
