The United States Capitol building is located in Washington, D.C. on top of Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall. It is among the most sybolically important buildings in the nation. In 1792 Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson and President George Washington proposed a design competition to solicit designs for the Capitol. The prize was to be $500 and a city lot. Unfortunately none of the plans submitted within the time frame of the competition were satisfactory and as such none were chosen. A late entry made by William Thornton, an amateur architect was praised by both Thomas Jefferson and Presiden Washington who was enamored with its "Grandeur, Simplicity, and Beauty".
