The rotunda, halls and all of the lobby areas are lined with a warm, delicately polished, rose travertine from Montana. The floor and staircases of the rotunda utilize large squares of Phoenix Napoleon grey marble from Missouri, with borders of Radio Black marble from Vermont.

 

The beauty of the entire Capitol plan is enhanced by its utility. The building houses several elected state officials—the governor, the secretary of state and the state treasurer—in addition to the entire legislative branch of state government. Spacious hearing rooms provide Oregonians an opportunity to participate in legislative decision making and to view state government at work.
