State House Complex

 State House Complex

For a brief few months in 1784, Trenton become the nation's capital. Although Washington, D.C. would ultimately be awarded the designation of permanent U.S. capital, in 1790 Trenton was made capital of the state of New Jersey. The first State House was built in 1792, and as state government grew, numerous expansions were made, the most recent renovation being in 1987. Housing the State Legislature, the Governor's office and other Executive branch offices, the current State House contains part of the original 1792 structure, making it the second oldest State House in continuous use (after Maryland's). Along with the State House Annex, State Library and Museum, and State Archives, the State House forms the State House Complex, with many resources for residents. State House tours open a window into the storied history of the running of state government, and from the public balconies of the Assembly and Senate chambers, or at any number of gatherings and speeches on State Street, visitors can witness their elected representatives at work, and their fellow citizens exercising their right to free speech and to publicly gather.
