National Cathedral

On this date in 1907, the foundation stone for Washington National Cathedral was laid in the presence of President Theodore Roosevelt and 20,000 spectators.
This magnificent edifice was completed by the setting of the final finial in1990, witnessed by President George H. W. Bush.
The cathedral has been designated National House of Prayer by the United States Congress.
My visit to this edifice was one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my stay in our nation's capital city. It merits a visit by everyone who goes to Washington.
