How old is the Capitol Hill neighborhood? George Washington laid the cornerstone to the original Capitol building back in 1793. The elevated location at the east end of the National Mall was selected by DC’s original planner—French architect Pierre Charles L’Enfant, who described the site as “a pedestal waiting for a monument.”
