One of the best kept secrets of DC are the 446 acres that comprise The National Arboretum.

These National Capitol Columns were installed on the East Portico of the Capitol Building in 1828 and then replaced in 1958 as part of an addition to the Capitol Building before finally finding a home at the Arboretum in the 1980s.
