The Nebraska Capitol is a stunning Art Deco structure located in the heart of Lincoln, Nebraska. This monumental Capitol building contains outstanding examples of the exterior and interior use of Indiana limestone, and interior use of Red Verona (Rosso Verona) marble, Ridgway bluestone, Yellow Kasota stone, Napoleon Gray marble, Belgian Black marble, Portoro (Black and Gold) marble, and Verde Antique. Examples of numerous other stone types quarried in the United States and Europe can also be found within the building. This chapter discusses these building and decorative stones as used in the Capitol, as well as the geologic setting of this building, the striking paleontological iconography of its Rotunda, and the stones used for the Lincoln Monument on the Capitol grounds.
