By an act of congress in 1790, the site of the city of Washington was finally chosen after long controversy. Major Pierre Charles L'Enfant was engaged by George Washington to lay out the plan for the city. On June 11, 1800, Congress, the supreme Court and President Adams moved from the old capitol at Philadelphia to the still unfinished Washington.
