The National Statuary Hall is located in the United States Capitol and is south of the Rotunda. This was originally constructed as the chamber for the House of Representatives and was used as such after construction was completed in 1819. The semicircular room with its curved ceiling caused echoes that made it difficult to conduct business in the chamber. The House of Representatives moved into its current chamber in 1857.

The room is now used for the display of statuary. Each state was asked to contribute two statutes of prominent people, and many of those statutes are displayed in this room.
