US Capitol Dome Tour

Capitol Dome Cross-sectionI had the rare and unique opportunity to take a tour through the US Capitol Dome while I was in Washington, DC last week. US Senator Mike Lee was gracious enough to arrange for this amazing experience for my Utah County Association of REALTORS® leadership team.

What most people don’t realize is this dome was not part of the original Capitol, it was built from 1854-1865. The tour actual takes place in between the inner and outer domes as you wind your way through the cast iron structure. There are 365 stairs you must ascend to reach the very top, but you do not really notice them as your breath is taken away as you discover the many interesting aspects of this building, culminating in a rewarding and awe inspiring view of DC.
