About Washington

In 1790 Congress chose an area donated by Maryland as the seat of their new government. In 1800 they moved to the new city named after the first president George Washington.

Today Washington is more than just the political center of the United States. The city offers visitors a large number of impressive museums, memorials and monuments such as the 555ft tall Washington Monument.
