The heavy, square piers and arches on the first floor are of Kasota stone. Just above, at the second story, is a circular balustrade of marble from France and Greece. About ten feet from the balustrade the circular form becomes octagonal, with four walls of Kasota stone forming the piers which support the dome. In each of these piers is a niche intended for statuary, an inlaid panel of Italian marble above, and a seat of Grecian marble below. Over the piers are a series of paintings of Eward Simmons, the subject being "The Civilization of the Northwest."
