This is the second of two buildings to occupy this spot, the first one, long gone, is where George Washington took the oath of office to become our first President. All that is left of the structure is a slab of the balcony that he stood on. The museum also houses the bible he used and was used by several other Presidents. The current building built before the Civil War is impressive with a large rotunda and marble columns.
