Summary:
British scientist James Smithson (1765-1829) left his estate to found the Smithsonian Institution, and his endowment was used to build the Smithsonian Institution Building or "Castle." The Castle's distinct red sandstone, Romanesque façade, contrasts against the cool marble that dominates the National Mall. The story of the red sandstone is a fascinating piece of history. The Seneca Quarry where the stone came from experienced boom-bust cycles as its first developer died, it filed for bankruptcy twice, suffered through floods, and contributed to a national scandal that embarrassed the Grant presidency and helped bring down the Freedman's Bank.
