4th of July Celebration at North Dakota State Capitol on July 4, 2010. As usual, the windows of the capitol proudly support the holiday by spelling “4th”
Windows of the North Dakota Capitol are also known for sporting a Christmas Tree during the holiday season and the digits of the upcoming year for New Year’s.
The 19-story art deco North Dakota State Capitol was completed in 1934, replacing the original 1884-built capitol that was destroyed by fire on December 28, 1930. An additional wing housing the Judicial Branch was added in 1981.
Due to its distinction as the tallest building in North Dakota, the Capitol carries the nickname “Skyscraper on the prairie”.
