Journaling text: In November 2013, we took a spontaneous weekend road trip, and this is our first stop in Richmond. Since 1788, it has been home to the General Assembly, the oldest legislature continuously operating in the US. Designed by Thomas Jefferson, the Capitol was the first public building constructed in the Monumental Classical style. This has served as a prototype for many capitols, courthouses, municipal buildings, churches and even residences across the US for more than 200 years. The highlight for us was the original sculpture of General Washington located inside the capitol rotunda. This has significance because it is based on a real-life mask and other actual measurements of the General himself, taken by the famous French sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon.
