Virginia’s historic State Capitol, home of the oldest continuous legislative body in the Western Hemisphere, will serve as the site of Gov. Bob McDonnell’s Republican Address to the Nation this Wednesday night.

McDonnell will speak from the floor of the House of Delegates, where he served for 14 years as a delegate representing Virginia Beach. McDonnell’s remarks will take place following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address.

The Virginia State Capitol was designed by Thomas Jefferson. Governor Patrick Henry attended the laying of the cornerstone in 1785. The General Assembly first met in the building in 1792, during the first term of America’s first President, Virginia’s George Washington.
