Washington, DC: The Supreme Court

This will be a very quick entry before the weekend: the United States Supreme Court. Pretty, no?

The Supreme Court building, located at 1, 1st St. N.E., Washington D.C., across the street from the U.S. Capitol, was designed by architect Cass Gilbert, and rises four stories (92 feet) above grade. The cornerstone was laid on October 13, 1932 and construction completed in 1935.

Anne:

I think this was one of the places we actually toured the one time I was in Washington. (But that was 30+ years ago, when I was about 12, so I don't remember much about the interior!) It is a gorgeous building.

What a beautiful picture of the Supreme Court (so white!) on a gorgeous day!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

There truly is some breath-taking architecture in DC. That's a gorgeous photo!
