The central section of the government building was built in 1739. After the canton was founded (1803), the government purchased the house and had it renovated to become this classical government building complete with lavish staircase. Behind it is the cantonal parliament building. With its theatrical semicircle, this house represents a key work of bourgeois classicism in Aargau.
