The Art Collection
This statue of Samuel Adams was given to the National Statuary Hall Collection by Massachusetts in 1876. Adams served as a member of the Continental Congress from 1774 to 1781, where he voted for and signed the Declaration of Independence. He is often referred to as the 'Father of the American Revolution.'
Is anyone buried in the Capitol?
No. A tomb area was built for the remains of George Washington beneath the Crypt, but his will specified that he wished to be buried at his home at Mount Vernon, and his descendants honored this wish.
