South Carolina Statehouse


Struktur allgemein

Monumentaler Saal
existent [fertiggestellt]


Kapitol (Region)


  • Bronze stars on the south and west facades mark scars made by Sherman's shells.
  • The South Carolina Statehouse is built of gray granite in an Italian Renaissance design.
  • All throughout the capitol grounds, one will encounter numerous statues, memorials and monuments ranging from a statue of Strom Thurmond to a memorial celebrating all African-Americans.
  • The large columns at the front portico were each cut from single pieces of stone, and they are believed to be the largest monolithic columns adorning a building in the United States.
  • Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.
  • Between 1995 and 1998, the Statehouse had a complete renovation at a cost of $51,530,000.
  • Construction of this state house was begun in 1855 and continued uninterrupted to February 17, 1865, when Sherman burned Columbia. Work was resumed in 1867 and carried on irregularly to 1900.
  • Due to the original architectural plans being destroyed by Sherman when he burned Columbia, the dome of the Statehouse is dramatically different than originally envisioned.
  • For decades, three flags flew above the Statehouse: the United States, the state of South Carolina, and of the battle flag of the Confederate States of America.
  • On July 1, 2000, the Confederate flag was removed due to increasing opposition to it and planned boycotts of the state until it was removed. The flag can now be found at the Civil War memorial on the capitol grounds.
