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.
