Additional Details:
The US Capitol, one of the largest and stateliest buildings in the world, sets on a height overlooking the amphitheatre of the Potomac. It is 751 feet long, 350 feet wide, and covers three and half acres. The Statue of Freedom on the dome towers 307 feet above the esplanade. The cornerstone of the main building was laid by President Washington in 1793; the central building was finished in 1797, and the extensions were first occupied by Congress in 1847 and 1859
