Capitol Circles

Interior, Dome, US Capitol, Washington, DC

The current dome on the US Capitol in Washington, DC, is the second dome to grace the structure. Designed by Thomas U. Walter, the dome was influenced by classical European domes; it replaced a wooded dome completed by Charles Bulfinch in 1824. Built between 1854 and 1865, the new dome was made of fireproof cast iron painted to look like stone.   Constantino Brumidi painted a fresco, The Apotheosis of Washington, on a platform above the interior dome’s oculus.
