The Colorado State Capitol Building, situated at 200 East Colfax Avenue in Denver, Colorado, United States, is the home of the Colorado General Assembly and the workplaces of the Governor of Colorado and Lieutenant Governor of Colorado. The structure is deliberately reminiscent of the United States Capitol. Planned by Elijah E. Myers, it was built during the 1890s from Colorado white rock, and opened for use in November 1894.
The particular gold arch comprises of genuine gold leaf, first included 1908, celebrating the Colorado Gold Rush. The structure is a piece of Denver's Civic Center zone. It was recorded on the National Register of Historic Places as a feature of the Civic Center Historic District in 1974, and turned out to be a piece of the Denver Civic Center National Historic Landmark District in 2012.
