Washington, D.C., Park Improvements
During the latter part of the 19th century, many architectural and landscape proposals for extending the Capitol and its grounds were submitted to Congress. This design by T. Enthoffer included the winding paths and curving beds of a picturesque landscape. It provided for five unspecified government buildings, each built around an open courtyard. This plan was not approved.
