Spotted in the @uscapitol: Quartermaster General Montgomery C. Meigs (the architect and engineer of our building!) above Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer’s office.
Right now in the Great Hall: Fort building to the Game of Thrones soundtrack.

Might be a tundra out there, but it’s cozy inside. We’re open today!
Montgomery Meigs designed our building with an ingenious ventilation system. He calculated that fresh air would circulate through the building every 2 minutes. #tbt #engineering
