The portico with a coffered ceiling featuring decorative rosettes


The entrance portal with three sets of massive bronze doors

Relief depicting a sailing ship; relief with a Washington landscape scene--a forest with a waterfall


Relief depicting a settler's farm; relief with an early public building, the Territorial capitol


Relief with a flock of sheep; relief depicting logging activity with oxen pulling logs
