The Wisconsin State Capitol

Historical landmark
1 block away
The Capitol is 284 feet, 5 inches tall from the ground floor to the top of the statue on the dome, making the building 3 feet shorter than the nation's capitol in Washington D.C. The "Wisconsin" statue on the dome was sculpted in 1920 by Daniel Chester French of New York. Her left hand holds a globe with an eagle on it and her right arm is outstretched to symbolize the state motto, "Forward." She wears a helmet with the state animal, the badger, on top. She is made of hollow bronze covered with gold leaf. "Wisconsin" is 15 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs three tons. The statue is commonly misidentified as "Lady Forward" or "Miss Forward", which is the name of another statue on the capitol grounds. The Capitol was constructed of 43 types of stone from six countries and eight states. The exterior stone is Bethel White granite from Vermont, making the exterior dome the largest granite dome in the world. In the rotunda is marble from Greece, Algeria, Italy, and France, along with Minnesota limestone, Norwegian syenite (Labradorite) and red granite from Waupaca, Wisconsin. Other Wisconsin granites are located throughout the public hallways on the ground, first, and second floors. The building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2001. A 1990 state law prevents any building within one mile of the capitol from being taller than the base of the columns surrounding and supporting its dome.

The Orpheum Theatre

Historical landmark
2 blocks away
The Orpheum Theater is the most intact and finest remaining example of a vaudeville and movie theater in Madison. It was one of the two grand movie palaces built in downtown Madison during the heyday of motion picture entertainment, the period of opulent theaters in which one movie mogul remarked “we sell tickets to theaters, not movies.” Along with the Capitol Theater across the street, it was the venue for big name orchestras and stage stars, in addition to first run movies. Its French Renaissance interior made it one of the most beautiful public spaces in the city. The limestone exterior was built in the very fashionable Art Deco style, and the towering “Orpheum” sign is a visual landmark in downtown Madison. Frank Sinatra, Buddy Holly, Artie Shaw, Louis Armstrong are a few of the artists that performed there in its heyday. Some recent acts include Ween, The Bangles, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, Bela Fleck, Feist, The Guess Who and Frank Caliendo. The Orpheum Lobby Restaurant and Bar is open to the public on weekdays for lunch and dinner and on weekends for breakfast and dinner.
