The marble floor area
inside the north entrance door is different from the Italian Terrazzo tile used throughout
the rest of the building. The reason for the dark marble floor here is that this portion
of the building was added on to the main Capitol in 1932 and is referred to as the annex
of the Capitol.
As you approach the first
floor area under the marble staircase, the floor is composed of small individual Terrazzo
tiles. Each tile was individually hand laid by an Italian artisan.
