History & Design

In 1800, the northern Senate wing of the Capitol was completed, with the southern House of Representative's wing completed in 1811 (followed by other expansions). A central dome, topped with the Statue of Freedom and a rotunda below connects the two wings. Inside, the Capitol houses an impressive array of artwork depicting historical moments of the United States as well as historical figures vital to the formation of this great country.

Seat of Government

Located on Capitol Hill at the east end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the United States Capitol is the seat of government for the United States Congress.

Special Ceremonies

Most notably, George Washington laid the cornerstone for the Capitol at the groundbreaking ceremony on September 18, 1793. However, many presidents have been involved in events at the Capitol rotunda for public viewing, and the Capitol has hosted many Presidential inaugurations. A beautiful Capitol Reflection Pool leads to the west front of the building.

Significance of Flags

U.S. flags fly from rooftop flagpoles on the North (Senate) and South (House of Representative) when either chamber is in session, and two additional flags have flown day and night at the base of the dome on the East and West since World War I.

 

This ornament is a beautiful way to commemorate the historical beauty of our great nation.
