In college I interned for a Tennessee State Senator. The job was menial, but the building felt so important. I don’t often seek them out, but I do enjoy visiting state capitol buildings when nearby. North Dakota did not disappoint!

The capitol building is called the Skyscraper on the Prairie because it’s the tallest building in North Dakota 🤯 at 21 stories
The governor’s residence, built in 2018 for $4.9 million
