FEATURED in DOWNTOWN, in RETIRED AND HAPPY and in THE WORLD

The columns of the Supreme Court in Washington, DC

The Supreme Court Building, constructed between 1932—1935, was designed by noted architect Cass Gilbert, who is best known as the architect for the Woolworth Building in New York.
At the laying of the cornerstone for the building on October 13, 1932, Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes stated, “The Republic endures and this is the symbol of its faith.” The building was designed on a scale in keeping with the importance and dignity of the Court and the Judiciary as a coequal, independent branch of the Federal government and as a symbol of “the national ideal of justice in the highest sphere of activity.” Sixteen marble columns at the main west entrance support the portico and on the architrave above is incised, “Equal Justice Under Law.”
