The Senate and Assembly Staircases were designed by Leopold Eidlitz with the Assembly staircase being the first to be completed. The stone carving on this staircase, although more subtle and restrained than that of the others, is still impressive.
The Great Western Staircase, also known as the Million Dollar Staircase, took an unheard of 14 years to construct, from 1883-1897 and cost, more than one million dollars. The delays in constructing this magnificent staircase were two-fold. Designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and built by Isaac Perry, the staircase contains 444 steps and reaches 119 feet high, is renowned as an outstanding example of American architectural stone carving excellence.
