Precisely on September 18, 1793, George Washington laid the first stone of the United States Capitol Building, as a sign of the start of construction of the building.


The north wing area is the first completed section of the Capitol building. In 1800, the US Congress held its first meeting on the north wing of the Capitol.


After that, in 1807 the south wing of the Capitol building was completed. The first meeting of board members took place in the south wing. In 1811, the two wings were connected.


It took nearly a century to complete this white domed building. Many architects took turns working on this building. The Capitol building itself has 540 rooms.


In its journey, this building was burned down by British troops in 1814, rebuilt, then expanded and restored to what we see today. The Capitol building is now not only a monument to its founder but also to the American people and government.
