Do you mean all the marble is from Washington? That’s not correct, we were just there and did the 3 hour tour. Almost all the different areas are made from marble from different areas. Some from Alaska, some from France and Greece I think it’s from all over the world. And they have like 489 Tiffany lamps from the Tiffany lamp company that went out of business in the Great Depression. The finished the capital building in 1928 I think, a year before the depression, otherwise they would never have been able to build it as grandly as it is.
