Washington Monument

 The Washington Monument is an obelisk memorial built in memory of George Washington, first president of the United States of America. It is located at a westward extension of the Mall just east of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. To the south of the monument is the Tidal Basin and it is separated from the White House on the north only by the Ellipse and Constitution Avenue. The building of the monument was originally conceived by the Washington National Monument Society (founded in 1838). Public subscriptions and federal appropriations funded the project, which was dedicated in 1885. Based on a design by Robert Mills, it is a granite obelisk faced with Maryland Marble. It measures 16.8 meters (55 feet) at the base and stands 169.3 meters (555 feet) tall. Ninety carved stones, presented by various nations, cities, states, and individuals, decorate the interior walls. Some 898 steps (50 landings) are needed to climb to the top of the monument. It can also be reached in only 70 seconds by elevator. The monument is supervised as a unit of the National Capital Parks.
