My Favorite Experience

My favourite tour was The Ohio Supreme Court Building.  I have seen the building man times prior to taking this class but I never knew what it was.  I learned a few weeks into the class that it was the Supreme Court building and that we would be touring it later in the year.  I was very excited to be able to take a tour of such a significant building.  I had no idea of the rich history of that building until the tour was underway.  From far away the exterior seems bland and plain but once you get up close you can see the intricate design of the white marble and the small carvings in the walls.  Perhaps my favorite part of the building was in the basement.  The basement had a beautiful ribbed vault with an intricate mosaics on the ceiling.  The wood work throughout the building was also amazing.  All the wood was hand carved with a lot detail in every little piece.  There was beautiful hand painted murals all over the building that depicted Ohio’s important history.  The building had great views of the city.  The best view from the building came from the library looking over the river into Franklington and the old Central High School.
