A Memorial to The First President

The monument stands as a testament to the visionary leadership and the enduring values that have shaped America. Its design was inspired by ancient Egyptian obelisks, rising an impressive 555 feet into the sky.

The monument’s interior houses a unique museum that showcases artifacts and memorabilia related to George Washington’s life and legacy. Here, you can feel free to explore the various exhibits, gain valuable insights into Washington’s pivotal role in shaping the nation and honor the sacrifices made by those who fought for independence.
