In its 17-year history, the Capitol has housed many of the most powerful and influential people in Washington, D.C. and is the home to one of the largest and most powerful collections of Capitol artifacts.
The Washington Monument is the world’s largest and longest-standing building and was the first to be dedicated to the U.S. Constitution in 1789.
The building has hosted a slew of events for the nation’s capital, from the annual Capitol Hill Summerfest to the annual Independence Day Parade.
Now, the Smithsonian Institution is embarking on a grand restoration of the Capitol’s most iconic building, which was designed in the 19th century by architect John Jacob Astor.
The National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History will be among the institutions that will be in the Smithsonian’s Capital Building Museum from September through October.
The museum will be the first museum to house an entirely new building in the capital.
The Smithsonian building is a unique structure in Washington because it was designed and built in 1865.
It was constructed from steel and brick and was designed to withstand a 100-year-long drought.
Smithsonian officials say the new building will be able to withstand the next 100 years of extreme weather, but they are not ready to disclose a date yet.
The new building is part of a $300 million renovation of the historic Capitol building.
The Capitol was built in 1864 to be the seat of Congress.
In the years after World War I, it was home to the first Congress, the first Senate, and a House of Representatives.
The original building was originally designed by the Ulysses S. Grant administration, which built it on land the president purchased in the 1850s.
The project was the largest public works project in the nation, and the work involved a series of battleships, dredging and other labor intensive work.
The entire project cost $1.5 billion, with the federal government receiving a $50 million grant from Congress.
The first day of the renovation is slated to begin this week, with construction expected to last two weeks.
The $300-million project is part $2.1 billion budget to improve and modernize the Capitol.
Construction of the new Capitol building began in May 2018, and it will be completed in 2024.
The construction project will include a large public art installation, new landscaping, a new outdoor plaza, and an expansion of the Washington Monument.
Construction on the new monument began in 2015, and is expected to be complete by 2021.
This new Capitol renovation will help the National Museum and the National Archives to create a more vibrant and comprehensive collection of Capitol building artifacts.
With the Capitol being the first building in Washington to be completely rebuilt, Smithsonian officials will have a much greater opportunity to collect and display historic artifacts that were lost during the reconstruction process.
Smithsonian Deputy Director of Collections Chris McPherson said that in the next 10 years, the National Capitol Museum will have the largest collection of artifacts in the United States, including more than 20,000 artifacts from the Capitol building itself.
Smithsonian is working with local preservation groups to preserve the artifacts, including the Washington Historical Society, which is planning to restore the historic statue of Sen. Joseph McCarthy.
