Washington Monument

Fodor's Review

Completed on July 4, 1829, the impressive monument was the first one dedicated to the nation's first president. An 18-foot statue depicting Washington caps the 160-foot white marble tower. The tower was designed and built by Robert Mills, the first architect born and educated in the United States; 19 years after completing Baltimore's Washington Monument, Mills designed and erected the national Washington Monument in D.C. A two-year project to restore the monument's facade,

replace the roof, and make electrical improvements is currently underway; the monument's lower level museum will reopen to the public in time for its 200th anniversary, on July 4, 2015.
