English version is down below

Washington se estableció como la capital de Estados Unidos como resultado de un acuerdo culminado después de 7 años de negociación por miembros del Congreso de los Estados Unidos que fue definido entonces con el concepto de enclave federal.

El 17 de julio de 1790 el Congreso aprobó la ley de Residencia, la que creó un asentamiento permanente para el gobierno federal. George Washington, el primer presidente que tuvo el país (1789-97) eligió cuidadosamente el lugar, en el principal punto de navegación del río Potomac, y de esta manera poder albergar la flota de barcos de la joven nación y adicionalmente, estar cerca de dos ciudades con puerto muy bien establecidos, George Town (actualmente hoy en día Georgetown, una parte de la ciudad de Washington) y Alexandria, Virginia.

Esta localización unió los estados del Norte y el Sur, pero Washington la llamó “La entrada hacia el interior” ya que abrigaba la esperanza que esto sirviera también para unir económicamente los territorios del Oeste a la costa de Este, las regiones de Tidewater y Piedmont, y de este modo asegurar la alianza de la frontera al nuevo territorio.

El nuevo territorio federal fue llamado Distrito de Columbia en honor al explorador Cristóbal Colón y la nueva ciudad federal fue llamada por George Washington. La construcción del Capitolio, el palacio presidencial -hoy la Casa Blanca- y muchos otros edificios del gobierno fueron terminados cuando el Congreso se mudó desde Filadelfia a Washington en diciembre de 1800. Sin embargo, pocas viviendas fueron terminadas y mucho menos, establecidos los servicios en la ciudad de Washington en aquel momento, haciendo los primeros años bastante desagradables para los nuevos residentes.

Washington was established as the capital of the United States as the result of a compromise as a result of seven years of negotiation by members of the U.S. Congress as they tried to define the concept of a “federal enclave.” On July 17, 1790, Congress passed the Residence Act, which created a permanent seat for the federal government. George Washington, the country’s first president (1789–97), carefully chose the site, which is on the Potomac River’s navigation head (to accommodate oceangoing ships), and near two well-established colonial port cities, George Town (now George Town, a section of the city of Washington) and Alexandria, Va.

This location bridged the Northern and Southern states, but Washington called it “the gateway to the interior” because he hoped it would also serve to economically bind the Western territories to the Eastern Seaboard —the Tidewater and the Piedmont regions—and thereby secure the allegiance of the frontier to the new country.

Construction of the Capitol building, the presidential palace (now the White House), and several other government buildings was almost complete when Congress moved from Philadelphia to Washington in December 1800. There were, however, few finished dwellings and even fewer amenities in Washington at the time, making the first several years rather unpleasant for the new residents

The first half of the 20th century was an explosive time in the capital city—socially, economically, and culturally speaking—and Washington began to gain worldwide attention. Grand homes for embassies were constructed on 16th Street, north of the White House, and later along Massachusetts Avenue, a strip that is now known as Embassy Row. Pres. Woodrow Wilson gave Washington a voice in world affairs through the country’s entry into World War I in 1917 and through his work to establish the short-lived League of Nations, an organization promoting international cooperation. After the war, civic pride and culture flooded the city. Art galleries, museums, concert halls, and the Lincoln Memorial were built.
