Nurses’ Hall

When you walk out of Doric Hall and into Nurse’s Hall, you have left the part of the State House designed by Bulfinch and entered a “new” addition which is quite old now. Built in 1895 and designed by Charles Brigham, it has a very different feeling with its ornate mosaic floors, marble columns, and large murals.

One of the most inspiring sculptures in the State House is in this room. It is a statue of a nurse and a wounded soldier which was carved to honor the women who served as nurses during the Civil War.

In this room, too, are paintings of Paul Revere’s ride and the Boston Tea Party.
