Linking the diverse sites throughout Delaware's capital city, the park paints a comprehensive picture of the heritage of Dover and the State of Delaware.

Legislative Hall, the capitol building for the State of Delaware.Before you stands Legislative Hall, the capitol building for the State of Delaware. The Senate and House of Representatives meet in this building, which also houses the offices of the legislators and their staff. The Governor and Lieutenant Governor also maintain offices in Legislative Hall. The Office of the Controller General and the Division of Research—two non-partisan state agencies that provide fiscal oversight, legislative research and other support services to the General Assembly—are also located here.

Legislative Hall was dedicated as the state's new capitol building in 1933, replacing the State House on the Green. Over the years, this Georgian-style structure has been expanded twice. The north and south wings were completed in 1970 to provide offices for every legislator. Two more wings were added to the east side of the building in 1994 to provide additional office space and caucus rooms. The colonial-style interior contains murals depicting Delaware history that were commissioned to honor the 200th anniversary of the United States Constitution. An extensive portrait collection and changing exhibits are also on display. The building is open to the public.
