Built in 1938, the Oregon State Capitol was only the second one so far that had a cupola instead of a dome on top of it. True to form and, perhaps, mirroring this environmentally-friendly state with votes cast mostly by mail and having two-thirds covered by desert, this capitol was unique. (State Motto: She flies with her own wings. Nickname: the Beaver State. FYI...it is pronounced Or-a- gun.) Salem, Oregon, even had a unique Walk of Flags for every state...located just beyond the Liberty Bell. Pride runs high through this state and rightfully so.
