Lego's State House

The Danish toymaker, Lego, has had its U.S. operations in Enfield, CT, since the 1970s. 

Lego employs modelmakers to produce special exhibitions from Lego bricks, but there are also many Lego hobbyists who build impressive model structures from standard Lego bricks.  I don't know who made this one.  The model is in the lower level of Hartford's Old State House.

I have previously shown you the Old State House here and here and here.  Plus others.

Sweet! This is an impressive Lego model. I sure loved Legos when I was little.

That is truly awesome! It's a great company that has been in business for years, which so many children love. I think I'll have to look it up on Wiki now that my historical curiosity is alive.

Wow. This is incredible work....the Lego structures always amaze me. (Maybe because I compare it with the ones I stumble over through my hallway:)

Very nice. My brother and I used to fight over who got to use the Legos, and then invariably somebody (my mom) would step on the pieces that got left in the shag carpet.

I will always admire the patience of those who build these things.
