June 30, 2016 – Iowa State Capitol,Terrace Hill and Salisbury House

This morning, we set out to visit the State Capitol in Des Moines.  Nearing the city, it was immediately identifiable

Iowa State Capitol from the World War II Memorial, Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

Iowa State Capitol (a), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

as the only five-domed state capitol in the United States.

Minor Domes

Iowa State Capitol (Minor Domes Cupola), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

The main dome has been gilded five times since its completion in 1886.  The 23¾ Karat gold is 1/250,000th of in inch thick … and if rolled together would make an object roughly the size of a baseball and weigh around 6 pounds.

This building is the fourth building to house Iowa’s government

Iowa State Capitol (Iowa's Butler Capitol - 1841), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30The Butler Capitol (1841) was built by Walter Butler in Iowa City and served the needs for the 4th and 5th Legislative Assemblies.

Iowa State Capitol (Old Stone Capitol - 1842-1857), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30The Old Stone Capitol (1842 – 1857) was an elegant example of Greek Revival architecture and served as the seat of government for fifteen yearss.

Iowa State Capitol (Old Brick Capitol - 1857-1884), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30The Old Brick Capitol (1857 – 1884)  The capital was moved to Des Moines in 1857.  A three-story brick building served at the state’s capitol for twenty-seven years.  Destroyed by a fire in 1892, its site is presently occupied by the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument.

The architectural design of the current Capitol, rectangular in form, with great windows and high ceilings, follows the traditional pattern of the nineteenth century planning for public buildings, a modified and refined Renaissance style which gives the impression of strength and dignity combined with utility.

The exterior of the building is entirely of stone with elaborate columns and handsomely designed cornices and capitals. Iowa stone is the foundation for the many porticoes of the building. The building is brick with limestone from Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio and Illinois. The substructure is of dark Iowa stone topped by a heavy course of varied-colored granite cut from glacial boulders gathered from the Iowa prairie. The superstructure, or main part of the building, is of bluff colored sandstone from quarries along the Mississippi River in Missouri.

With a few exceptions, most of what passes for marble is actually Scagliola, is a composite substance made from selenite, glue and natural pigments, imitating marble and other hard stones. The material may be veined with colors and applied to a core, or desired pattern may be carved into a previously prepared scagliola matrix. The pattern's indentations are then filled with the colored, plaster-like scagliola composite, and then polished with flax oil for brightness, and wax for protection. The combination of materials and technique provides a complex texture, and richness of color not available in natural veined marbles.

Exceptions are found in the Governor’s reception office

and in the main columns supporting the Capitol’s dome.

The Iowa was the lead ship of her battleship class and the fourth named in honor of the 29th state.  It is also the only ship of her class to have served in the Atlantic Theater during World War II.  She is also unique in having an elevator which was installed to accommodate President Roosevelt who traveled aboard enroute to the Yalta Conference with Stalin and Churchill.

In the east wing, there is a case depicting each of Iowa’s First Ladies in the gowns they wore to their husband’s inauguration.

Twelve statues, high within the rotunda, beginning north of the library door, represent History, Science, Law, Fame, Art, Industry, Peace, Commerce, Agriculture, Victory, Truth, and Justice … and are interspersed with  lunettes, or half-moon-shaped paintings, surrounding the rotunda are the work of Kenyon Cox, famous American artist. They include: Hunting, Herding, Agriculture, the Forge, Commerce, Education, Science, and Art. They are allegorical and indicate the progress of civilization.

Above the landing and extending the full width of the wall is the great mural painting, "Westward,"

Iowa State Capitol (Grand Staircase Landing Mural Painting), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

an idealized representation of the coming of the people who made Iowa.

"The main idea of the picture is a symbolical presentation of the Pioneers led by the spirits of Civilization and Enlightenment to the conquest by cultivation of the Great West. Considered pictorially, the canvas shows a prairie schooner drawn by oxen across the prairie. The family ride upon the wagon or walk at its side. Behind them and seen through the growth of stalks of corn at the right, come crowding the other pioneers and later men. In the air and before the wagon are floating four female figures; one holds the shield with the arms of the State of Iowa upon it; one holds a book symbolizing enlightenment; two others carry a basket and scatter the seeds which are symbolical of the change from wilderness to plowed fields and gardens that shall come over the prairie. Behind the wagon and also floating in the air, two female figures hold respectively a model of a stationary steam engine and of an electro dynamo to suggest the forces which come with the later men. In the right hand corner of the picture, melons, pumpkins, etc., among which stand a farmer and a girl, suggest that here is the fringe of cultivation and the beginning of the prairie. At the left a buffalo skull rather emphasizes this suggestion."

Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust MemorialThe Holocaust Memorial was installed on the West Capitol Terrace in June 2013. The design of ribbons of aluminum in concrete, with prairie grasses, is intended to be an abstract representation of a Holocaust survivor's journey. The struggle for survival and perseverance in the face of oppression are described in text samples along the memorial.

Our next stop was Terrace Hill, also known as Hubbell Mansion, Benjamin F. Allen House, and Iowa Governor's Mansion, is the official residence of the Governor of Iowa.

 Terrace Hill (bbbbbbbbbbbb)

Terrace Hill was built by Benjamin Franklin Allen, the first millionaire in Iowa, as a home for his family.   Construction began in 1866, and was finished in 1869. The total cost of the project was $250,000 for the Mansion, the Carriage House, the original furnishings, and about 30 acres of land. The house had very modern features for its time, which included hot and cold running water, indoor restrooms, an elevator, and gas lights.

After Allen lost his fortune he sold the mansion to Frederick Hubbell, a prominent Des Moines real estate, railroad and insurance magnate.  The home remained in the care of the Hubbell family until 1971 when they donated Terrace Hill to the State of Iowa to be used as the official governor’s residence.

Surprisingly, we were advised that no photos were permitted inside the residence … the first such restriction among all of the governors’ mansions we’re toured.  The following photos are either pictures I took of a brochure on Terrace Hill or from the Internet.  Unfortunately, the do not do the property justice!

The first floor of Terrace Hill is a formal area. The rooms on the first floor were used often for reception of important guests, a tradition which continues.

The Vestibule is the entry area to the mansion. Formerly, a servant would greet guests in the Vestibule. They would enter through two sets of doors there that weigh more than 200 pounds each.

From there, guests would be taken to the Reception Room.

PARLOR

Guests would wait while their presence was announced to the owners, and the host or hostess would greet them in that room.

Across the hall is the Drawing Room.

PARLOR A

At one time it was used for weddings and funerals of the home's residents. Now the room is used for important events – which include entertaining of foreign dignitaries. The room also features a 7.5 foot crystal chandelier, and hand-carved, laminated, rosewood Belter furniture.

The Music Room was previously an entertainment room. Young women would usually play music in this room. The room features a Steinway "Music Room Grand" from 1869 – the same year the house was completed.

MUSIC ROOM

The Dining Room was used for formal dinners by the previous owners of the home. Today the Dining Room continues to be used for state dinners and receptions. Food served in the dining room is prepared in the kitchen in the basement.

DINING ROOM

The Library was another important room on the first floor. It served originally as the gathering place for the men of the home, and as a storage place for knowledge. The room contains several interesting items, which include F. M. Hubbell's leather chair. Because he was only just over 5 feet tall, the chair sits close to the floor to accommodate him.

At the end of the Main Hall on the First Floor, there is a grand staircase

SAIRCASE A

that leads up to the Second Floor, with a landing in between. At the landing between the First and Second Floors, there is a stained glass window. The window is often described as "garden in glass"

STAIN GLASS

and measures 9 by 13 feet This window colors the landing and part of the staircase with colorful light. The window was added by F. M. Hubbell between 1884 and 1890.

After the landing, the staircase divides into two approaches to the Second Floor.

UPPER STAIRCASE

Originally the Second Floor served as the bedrooms for most of the family. Now the formal office of the Governor is located on the Second Floor (his working office is located at the Capital).

The First Lady's office is also located on the Second Floor.  Her office is not normally part of tours because she uses the office as her working office for writing speeches, scheduling appearances, and planning special events.

The Governor of Iowa and his family live in the private apartment on the third floor of the house. This floor is not normally open to tours; it opens only for special events, such as fundraisers for restoration or holiday tours.

The Basement, like the Third Floor, is also not open to the public. The Governor, his family, and certain staff members have a private entrance in the basement. A kitchen located in the basement prepares meals for special events.

While not permitted to take indoor photos, we could use our camera outside.

Terrace Hill (Original Maiden by the Pool), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

We had planned on going to the botanical gardens as a final stop after talking to the Terrace Hill tour guide and a couple on our State Capitol tour, we opted to visit Salisbury House,

Salisbury (Commoon Room -c - View from end of the Gardens), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

Salisbury (Front Facade), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

a Tudor, Gothic and Carolean style manor home.  It was built by cosmetic magnate Carl Weeks (founder of

Salisbury (Armand Complexion Powders), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

an incredibly successful company manufacturing personal skin care products)

and his wife, Edith Van Slyke Weeks, between 1923 and 1928. Salisbury House was modeled after the King’s House in Salisbury, England. 

The decorative blocks

Salisbury (Stones from the Dover Cliffs, England), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

are made from chalk-covered flint stones

Salisbury (Stone from the Dover Cliffs, England), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

found only at the White Cliffs of Dover, England. 

It contains 42 rooms and measures just over 22,000 square feet.  Modern conveniences of the 1920s including indoor plumbing, refrigeration, central heating and telephones added a contemporary infrastructure to the classic (and in our opinion, very mismatched) architecture.

Unfortunately, the confluence of the 1929 stock market crash and the ensuing Great Depression, combined with a long-running suit between Armand and the Federal Trade Commission, negatively impacted his sizeable fortune.  Moreover, an out-of-court settlement related to an automobile fatality caused by one his sons and changed property tax laws quickly called into question the Weeks family’s ability to maintain Salisbury. 

Ever the savvy businessman, Carl Weeks brokered an innovative solution.  In 1934, the family donated Salisbury House to Drake University, while retaining its furnishings and collections.  Under the terms of the agreement, the Weekses

Salisbury (Charles & Edith Weeks - Sons Charles, Hud, Laff and William - circca 1921), Des Moines, IA - 2016-06-30

would continue to live in the house as tenants until their youngest son graduated from college.

You enter through the Great Hall with its architectural features from the 13th century.

Back at our campground, adjacent to and part of Adventureland, a typical theme park, we were able to watch and even listen to the screams of kids and adults on several of the rides, three of which were visible from right outside our motorhome’s door.

The Storm Chaser

Adventureland Ride AThe Storm Chaser is a giant swing ride that takes you 260 feet off the ground and spins those brave enough to ride it around at 35 mph.

 

Sky Monster

Adventureland Ride BThe Sky Monster goes 65 mph takes riders upside down five times and over and under the skyride a total of eight times in feature with the only negative-G stall loop in the Western Hemisphere which leaves riders with the sensation that they're falling out of the coaster.  All this in an eternity of 110 seconds.

Space Shot

Adventureland Ride cSpace Shot launches its customers 200 feet up into the air.

Were we thinking about joining the “fun”?  No on your life!

Whilst Associate College diplomas are a great way to get started on, completing a person’s Bachelors presents you with many doors to various professions, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan.
