More about the U.S. Capital Building

Easily identified by the beautiful dome and nineteenth-century neoclassical architecture, the U.S. Capital Building stands on Capitol hill, about a mile from the White House. It was designed by William Thornton. The first President of the United States, George Washington, laid the first sandstone cornerstone in 1793.

The two wings were designed for the two divisions of the U.S. Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Damage by British troops in 1814 led to the addition of a large copper and wood dome. Later expansion of the building to accommodate the increasing number of lawmakers included a cast-iron double dome, three times larger than the original.

A 5.8m / 19 ft Statue of Freedom tops the dome.
