Missouri's third capitol building in Jefferson City, under construction in 1915, was built on the site of the one that burned in 1911 and was paid for through a $3.5 million bond issue that state voters overwhelmingly adopted only six month after the fire. It was completed in 1917. The dome, 262 feet high, was built of a steel frame and covered by limestone from Carthage, Mo., as is the rest of the exterior. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
