The United States Capitol is one of the most well known buildings in Washington D.C. This building is used for the Senate and the House of Representatives to have meetings over national policy, laws, and much more. The first President of the United States, George Washington, selected the design for this building himself in 1793. This is a great piece of Washington D.C's architecture to visit!
