Located just off the Senate floor, the Senate Reception is one of the most ornately decorated spaces in the Capitol. It is today as it was when it first opened up in 1853--a place where senators can meet with constituents or other members. In 1957 the Senate began filling up some of the wall spaces with portraits of some of those past members considered Senate “greats” such as Daniel Webster, Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun. This informal “hall of fame” is still adding new portraits from time to time. Adjacent to the Senate Reception Room is the LBJ Room. Named after former Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson, the stylized room is where he conducted much of his Senate business. The room is nicknamed “The Taj Mahal.” close
