The Virginia State Capitol will be featured in a PBS television special highlighting the 10 most influential buildings in America.

The Virginia State Capitol has been selected as one of 10 influential buildings in America, and will be featured on a national PBS television special, titled "10 Buildings That Changed America."

The 10 buildings were selected in consultation with architectural historians and others. The show's host, Geoffrey Baer, says the sites had to have had a powerful influence on the environment and "the way we live."

The state Capitol that was first occupied in 1788 has influenced scores of other buildings, from the U.S. Capitol to banks across the country.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the television crew filmed around the Virginia Capitol in recent days, after collecting footage of Monticello and the University of Virginia.
