Additional Information

Introduction

The United States Capitol is the home of the United States Congress and the seat of the legislative branch of the US federal government. It is located on Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The original building was completed in 1800 and subsequently expanded. Chambers for the bicameral legislature are located in each of the building's wing, the House of Representatives occupies the south wing and the Senate occupies the north wing. Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior. Tours of the interior are possible; however, these are best arranged by contacting individual members of Congress who consider tours part of their constituent services.
