Completed in 1819, the New Hampshire State House is the oldest state capitol in which the legislature meets in its original chambers.

Granite used to build the capitol came from the present day Swenson quarries; the cutting, shaping and facing of the stone was performed by inmates of the State Prison.

The huge gold-painted wooden eagle, a fixture of the building, was raised to the top of the dome in 1818. In 1957, it was replaced with an element-proof replica, with the wooden eagle moved to the New Hampshire Historical Society.
