North and Central America->United States->North Dakota->Bismarck
North Dakota used to have two statehouses, the first was constructed during the territorial period (1883-4) but burned on December 28, 1930. The second and present Capitol was completed in 1934, in the depths of the Great Depression. Due to this, much of the exterior ornament of the building had to be eliminated.
The architecture team was composed of Joseph Bell, DeRemer, Grand Forks, and W.F.Kurke, Fargo, with assoicate Chicago architects Holabird and Root.
