Spring landscaping on the Virginia State Capitol Grounds in Richmond, Virginia. Spring landscaping on the grounds of the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond, Virginia. Virginia State Capitol is located in Richmond, Virginia. It is the third capital city of the U.S. State of Virginia. It houses the oldest elected legislative body in North America, the Virginia General Assembly, first established as the House of Burgesses in 1619. The current Virginia State Capitol grounds are located at 10th and Bank Street.
Currently there are three fountains located on the Capitol Grounds. On this spring afternoon I captured this image of the fountain in the southwest corner, surrounded by pink and green foliage. This fountain was originally at the home of Westmoreland Davis, former of Governor of Virginia
