Alabama State Capitol

Alabama State Capitol

Built in the Greek Revival Style, the capitol building was designed by 19th century architect Barachias Holt. Its noted interior spiral stairway was built by the famed African- American engineer Horace King. Born into slavery, King was freed by his former master John King and granted all the rights of a free man by Special Act of the Alabama State Legislature. He is noted for his work as a designer and builder of covered bridges, among them the Red Oak Covered Bridge in Georgia. 1957
