The meeting place of the U.S. House from 1807-1857 is now the main exhibition space for the National Statuary Hall collection and is one of the most historic chambers in the Capitol.
Paris has the Eiffel Tower and New York City has the Empire State Building. Washington D.C. has the Washington Monument. It’s one of those structures you see almost anywhere from town. It ends up being your compass point as you travel around to help you keep your bearings.
No trip to Washington D.C. would be complete without a view of the White House. We "stumbled" upon it when we noticed it through the trees from the Washington Monument.
