AAA Editor Notes
State Capitol, 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd., is an adaptation of classical Greek and Roman architecture. On the grounds is the retired Capitol Site No. 1 oil well, originally nicknamed Petunia No. 1 because drilling began in November 1941 in the middle of a flower bed. The building is said to be the only Capitol in the world with an oil well beneath it.
At the south entrance is “Statue of a Cowboy,” by Constance Warren. A bronze statue of a Native American caps the dome.
