Finally, the scaffolding on the U.S. Capitol has been removed. The Capitol has entered the project’s "completion phase" with a finish by the inauguration in January. The cost of the restoration is $59.55 million.
The Capitol building joins LEGO’s Architecture series, making it the third Washington, D.C. building in the set, alongside the Lincoln Memorial and the White House. The LEGO Architecture series includes buildings like Big Ben.
Take a trip back in time to when the Capitol building was just an idea on paper. Below, Curbed has compiled over 45 photos that will take you as far back as 1792. The Capitol building wasn't completed until 1800.
