Washington DC: Supremes Celebrate 80th Birthday PDF Print E-mail

The U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. celebrates its 80th birthday this year. Based on the ancient Parthenon in Athens, it’s one of several well-known copies throughout the world.

Your travel4seniors.com editor has visited all, and is very familiar with two of these imposing structures. He spent a combined 14 years with them: 10 at Girard College residence school for fatherless boys, and four earning a BFA degree at the Philly Museum College of Art (now University of the Arts).
