The capital building was built by a woman named Rebecca Quinn and was designed by her son.
A couple of years ago, a local newspaper in Ohio named it after her.
But then a federal judge in Ohio ruled the building could not be named after her because it was built in the United State.
“We have decided not to make that decision,” said Deborah DeSantis, a spokeswoman for the National Capital Commission, which manages the National Mall.
Now, the Washington Post is naming the building after a woman who used her position to build a giant office building for the Federal Reserve.
The name “The Capital,” she said, “was named after my father and my great-grandfather who were in Washington, D.C., when the building was being constructed.”
