Stamptuary Hall: George Washington


George Washington, along with Benjamin Franklin, was featured on the first American postage stamps in 1847. Today, he has been on more US stamps than anyone else.

At the Capitol, Washington’s statue comes from Virginia and sits in the Rotunda, along with the other presidential statues in the Statuary Hall collection.

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
