The sandstone and marble Capitol was completed in 1920. The design of the building was designed to look like the U.S. Capitol in Washington,D.C. Local sandstone from east Boise's Tablerock Quarry was used as well as convict labor.

The height of the capitol building is 208 feet tall, coinciding with the state's area code (208).

It is the only state capitol to be heated by a geothermal well.

The Idaho State Capitol is currently closed to the public for extensive renovations. Government offices have been temporarily moved to nearby state buildings. The Idaho Legislature will meet in converted courtrooms in the old Ada County Courthouse until renovations are completed in 2010.
