This is one of the few state capitols to be designated a National Historic Landmark. A very historic event took place here in 1861, when Jefferson Davis stood on the steps and took the oath of office as the first and only President of the Confederate States of America. Guided tours are available and are well worth taking to learn more of the history of the building.
