Thirty-four stories high. Tallest building in the South, being 450 feet high. There are 249,000 square feet of usable floor space. Cost of Capital $5,000,000. Over 30 varieties of marble and stone were used in its construction, which were imported from Italy, France, Spain, Greece and Belgium.

F. Killen, R1. B1, WINNFIELD, LA.

‘Allo:

Our state capitol. It doesn’t look very high, but when you’re on top of it, you realize differently. Baton Rouge, as well as most of La. – as I have told you – Was settled by the French – thus the name. Note where its marble came from (above)
