Appreciating The Ohio Statehouse (Cont.)

The "Map Room"

The Ohio Statehouse has lots of interesting features.  One of my favorites is the “Map Room” in the basement.  It shows the outline of the State and each of its counties, with each county constructed of a different kind of stone. I dare any Ohioan to visit the Map Room and resist standing squarely and proudly atop their home county!

It’s a very cool area, and I always find myself wondering:  Why did they put this in the basement?
