Celebrated architect Solomon Layton was the original architect for the Oklahoma State Capitol which was constructed between 1914 and 1917 in the classic Greco-Roman (also known as neo-classical) style for a mere $1.5 million. The Capitol building is mainly composed of white limestone with a base of Oklahoma pink granite. Layton's original plans called for a domed Capitol, but the outbreak of WWI and state financial woes delayed construction. The dome was completed in 2002 according to Layton's original designs, a full 85 years after the construction of the State Capitol.
