Summary:Bird's-eye view of Washington, D.C., with the U.S. Capitol in the foreground, and the Washington Monument in the background.

Historical Information: The United States Capitol is one of the most majestically designed and meaningful of all structures in Washington DC. It has housed the Senate and House of Representatives for almost two centuries. The Washington DC capitol building is on a plateau 88 feet above the Potomac River, with an imposing view encompassing the Capitol Reflecting Pool, the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. In addition to its active use by Congress, the Capitol is a museum of American art and history.
Before 1791, the federal government had no permanent site. The early Congresses convened in eight separate locations:

New York City, NY
York, PA
Lancaster, PA
Baltimore, MD
Annapolis, MD
Trenton, NJ
Princeton, NJ
Philadelphia, PA

The subject of a permanent capital city for the government of the United States was first raised by Congress in 1783. Built in 1793, the US Capitol has been constructed, consumed by fire, repaired, enlarged, and refurbished; today, it stands as a monument to the American people and their government.
