National Arboretum

Twenty-two 34-foot tall sandstone Corinthian columns were removed after expansion of the U.S. Capitol building in the 1950s. The columns were eventually taken out of storage and English landscape architect Russell Page designed a setting for them on a knoll near the main entrance of the National Arboretum.
