The Smithsonian Castle
The Smithsonian Castle was the very first Smithsonian building on the National Mall in Washington D.C. It is the building to use as your compass to keep from getting lost on the mall since with its red exterior and nine towers it is very unique. This building was built and completed before the Cival War began thanks to the generosity of James Smithson, an English scientist. James Smithson loved America even though he never visited here.
