National Courthouse

The Supreme Court is one of those structures that just looks official. Even if you didn’t know who offices there, you just know something important must be going on inside.

Here’s an interesting fact you may not have known. The Court met in the Capitol building for many years, Then in 1929, former President William Howard Taft, who was Chief Justice from 1921 to 1930, persuaded Congress to authorize a permanent home for the Court. This building was completed in 1935 and has been the home of the Court since then. You can catch a glimpse of another view of the Supreme Court here.
