The Outer Dome of the SC State House

A ladder in this room at the top of the outer dome leads to the platform from which the United States and South Carolina flags are raised and lowered. An image on this page shows the view looking up towards the flagpole while standing on the platform.

The outer dome of the South Carolina State House is covered with 44,000 pounds of copper, the equivalent of about eight million pennies.
