Capitol Hill is also the oldest and largest residential historic area featuring an eclectic mix of row houses of different styles and architecture. Ornate Italian models exist next to early 19th century manor houses and federal townhouses.

Historic landmarks include not only the United States Capitol building set atop a hill overlooking the the National Mall, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court building, and Marine Barracks.
