A Visit To The Capitol

Rotunda Room by dtraleigh, on Flickr Recently, I visited the North Carolina State Capitol. Surprisingly, I had never visited before and I continuously put it off until a later time. But now I’ve finally walked around the historic structure and encourage anyone who hasn’t to do the same. Here’s all the information you need if […]

Pic of the Week
