Washington, D.C. is enriched with the treasures of our American heritage, offering a host of historical, cultural and diverse sightseeing opportunities.

My staff and I are delighted when fellow Iowans come to town, and we are ready to help make your stay as pleasant as possible.

I hope you will find the information in this section to be helpful in planning your visit to our nation's capital. We can mail a packet of information with maps and brochures to you to assist in planning your trip.

During your stay in Washington, I hope you will have the opportunity to drop by my office for information on area sites, get a tour of the capitol, or simply say hello. We are located in Room 1527 on the fifth floor of the Longworth House office Building, on Independence Avenue across from the Capitol.

We look forward to seeing you!
