The capitol building in Madison is designed to look like the capitol building in Washington, D.C.
Located at 2 East Main Street, the present capitol building was completed in 1917 at a cost of $7.25 million and is home to both chambers of the legislature, the supreme court and the governor. It is the fifth building to serve as the capitol since the legislature convened in 1836 and is the third building to be used since Wisconsin became a state in 1848.
Madison is the second largest city in the state of Wisconsin. It was incorporated in 1848 and named for James Madison, fourth president of the United States. The city had its beginnings in 1829 when James Doty purchased over 1,000 acres with plans to build a city. With plans on paper, Doty lobbied to have his city named the capital of the new Wisconsin territory.
