The Capitol Tour is free. Transportation will be provided from Landmark Baptist Church at 12:30 and will return by 4 PM. The tour will last one hour and involves much walking. The tour path is ADA compliant and a few wheelchairs are available upon request. The bus is leaving at 12:30 to allow time for each person to enjoy lunch before the tour. Lunch may be purchased at the SunTrust Building Cafeteria at a reasonable cost. After the tour, Eddy Aliff will be available for a fifteen minute overview of how the General Assembly session operates in our historic Capitol. The bus will load at 4:00 PM at the Bank Street entrance to the Capitol and return to Landmark Baptist Church.
