WV CAPITOL BLDG - WVJanis
Here is a photo of that fabulous dome on the Capitol Bldg. from the
Cultural Arts Center that Hillary says is a must to see. I absolutely
agree. You can see the reflection of a quilt exhibit from last year.
Fabulous exhibits of glass and non-glass items. High on my list of
"the Seven Wonders" of WV!!! And, oh that dome! You can't imagine
how impressive it looks as one approaches on I-79. For a minute, you
feel like you are in Europe. Reminds me of my favorite WV singer,
Hazel Dickens.... "West Virginia, oh my home. West Virginia is where
I belong. In the dead of the night, in the still and the quiet, I
slip away like a bird in flight. Back to those hills, the place that
I call home. West Virginia.........."
