Washington DC

The capital of the United States is Washington DC, where the "DC" stands for District of Columbia. The city was named for George Washington, a Founding Father and the first president of the United States while the federal district is named after Columbia, a female personification of the United States.

In the past, New York City and Philadelphia have each briefly served as the nation's capital. However, in 1790, Congress chose the District of Columbia as the new and permanent capital of the United States. George Washington himself was personally involved in selecting the location for the city. Ultimately, they went with a plot of land along the Potomac River that was carved out of the land transferred from Maryland and Virginia. The basic plan for the city was designed by Pierre-Charles L'Enfant who was a French born American engineer, architect, and urban designer. The gist of his idea was to include wide avenues radiating from the Capitol building through a grid of streets with numerous circles and parks. In 1800, Congress met for the first time in Washington DC. However, the first phase in the construction of the Capitol was not completed until 1826.

Washington DC is one of the country's most beautiful and historic cities and the site of many of its most popular tourist attractions. Millions of people visit each year. Some of the attractions include the White House, where the President lives and works, the United States Capitol, where the Congress meets, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and a wide range of museums which together contain an enormous collection of fascinating items from America's history.
