Learn More About It
Capital cities are important. They are the locations of governments, either for a state or for a nation. The nation's government is centered in Washington, D.C. In the same way, every state's government is centered in that state's capital city. Many state capitals have domed capitol buildings that serve as symbols for the city and state.
