The South Carolina State House has been called one of the most beautiful and majestic government buildings in the United States. Much of its attractiveness can be seen in the building’s architectural and historic features. These include the columns, bronze stars, dome, steps, carvings of South Carolina political figures, and artistic carvings. Adding to the grace and charm of the building is the South Carolina state flag, distinctive and truly original in its appearance.
