The presence of the National Capitol Columns on the knoll in this meadow was the inspiration of Ethel Shields Garrett, patron and friend of the National Arboretum. It was through her vision, courage, and determination for thirty years that these historic columns were saved and transferred to this site and that the design and funding for their permanent installation was secured in 1986. These columns, designed for the United States Capitol, continue to reaffirm our nation's commitment to fulfilling the dreams of a flourishing land and people.
