The Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool were designed by Henry Bacon, and following the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in 1922, the Pool construction was finished in 1923.  Located at the base of the Lincoln Memorial’s steps, the Reflecting Pool area has been the site of many historic events.  It is approximately 2,029 feet long (over a third of a mile) and 167 feet wide. It has a depth of approximately 18 inches on the sides and 30 inches in the center. It holds approximately 6,750,000 U.S. gallons of water.  Depending on the viewer’s vantage point, it dramatically reflects the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Mall’s trees, and/or the expansive sky.

The United States Capitol, the meeting place of the U.S. Congress, in Washington D.C. sits atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall.  Like the federal buildings for the executive and judicial branches, it is built in the distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior.  The Capitol Grounds cover approximately 274 acres, with the grounds proper consisting mostly of lawns, walkways, streets, drives, and planting areas.
