Originally called the Federal and Territorial Building, the building became the State Capitol when Alaska joined the Union in 1959. Attempts have been made to replace the building with a new Capitol, but a design could not be agreed upon.

After many delays, first by World War I and then by lack of funding, construction began on September 18, 1929. The building was completed in 1931.

The building was designed by architects from the United States Treasury Department.

While it is simple in design, the building is considered an example of the Art Deco architectural style.

Many rooms of the building have been restored to their 1930's appearance.
