RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A public television show on architectural landmarks will feature the Virginia State Capitol.
House Speaker Bill Howell said Monday the Capitol is included in the PBS special "10 Buildings That Changed America." The one-hour show airs Sunday night.
Among other buildings on the list are Boston's Trinity Church and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
The buildings were chosen by a panel of architects and historians.
"Virginia's beautiful and historic State Capitol is a source of true pride for all Virginians," Howell said. "The Capitol is an architectural masterpiece, historical treasure and monument to Democracy. Its design has inspired numerous other capitol buildings, including the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. Its history and traditions are rivaled by few other single buildings in America. It is the foundation for modern Democracy and an enduring sign of the strength of our Commonwealth and our nation."
