Building Materials

The North Dakota State Capitol building features several different granites, including Rockville White® for the steps, Cold Spring Black for the base of the building and Carnelian for the base of a memorial dedicated to John Burke.

Burke had many accomplishments, but one of his greatest was ridding ND of corrupt political control. He dedicated his life to public service as a school teacher, lawyer, newspaper publisher, county judge, and state legislator before becoming the 10th Governor of ND in 1907.
