Capitol Ohio : 119 - House Chamber
The House Chamber is approximately the same size as the Senate Chamber and accommodates Ohio's 99 elected state representatives. The Chamber was largely designed by Nathan B. Kelley, one of the original Statehouse architects. The design includes two side balconies that act as a viewing gallery, a third balcony added later and called the Ladies' Gallery, a marble speaker's dais, the "Lincoln Chair" which was actually constructed well after Lincoln's death, and the representatives' desks on a raised platform.
