The Maine State House in Augusta was built between 1829-32 on Weston Hill overlooking the Kennebec River. It was designed by Charles Bullfinch (1763-1844), America's first native-born architect. Since its construction, the State House has been renovated and expanded.
The State House includes Maine's Legislative Chambers and Office of the Governor. Visitors can study the building's historic architecture, see displays of Maine's battle flags and portraits of former Maine Governors.
