The majestic iconic Washington Monument is located at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and is walking distance to the White House, Capitol Building, and Supreme Court along with most of the other memorials and many of the museums.

The five scenes of the Washington Monument offer a glimpse of its splendor that only an in person visit can fully capture!

  1. A close look at the Washington Monument.

  2. A view of the WWII Monument, Reflection Pool, and Lincoln Memorial from the top of the Washington Monument

  3. A south view of the Washington Monument with the White House in the foreground and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in the background.

  4. A southwest view of the Washington Monument with the Potomac River and the Pentagon in the background.

  5. A night view of the Washington Monument in between the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol Building.

The Washington Monument, designed by Robert Mills and eventually completed by Thomas Casey and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, honors and memorializes George Washington at the center of the nation's capital. The structure was completed in two phases of construction, one private (1848-1854) and one public (1876-1884). Built in the shape of an Egyptian obelisk, evoking the timelessness of ancient civilizations, the Washington Monument embodies the awe, respect, and gratitude the nation felt for its most essential Founding Father. When completed, the Washington Monument was the tallest building in the world at 555 feet, 5-1/8 inches.
