Additional Details:
The United States Capitol, set on a height overlooking the amphitheatre of the Potomac, is one of the largest and stateliest buildings in the world. It is 751 feet in length and 350 feet in width, covering three and a half acres. The statue of Freedom on the dome towers 307 feet above the esplanade. The cornerstone was laid by President Washington in 1797; and the extensions were first occupied by Congress in 1857.
