welcome the opportunity to host you and your
guests on a tour of the State House.
more information, consult the Guided
Tours section of this web site.
visits to the New Jersey State House begin in the historic
Rotunda space where guests learn about our Capitol's
evolution from a simple rubble-stone structure built
in 1792 to the grand architectural monument of today.
Impressive stained glass windows surround portraits
of our early Governors. In the Governor's Reception
Room, are portraits of our more recent Governors and
the podium used by the Governor for signing bills and
making public addresses. Other interesting stops include
the rooms listed above. Since this is a working capitol,
room availability may be hampered by business needs
or security concerns.
