Jefferson Memorial

Ohio Drive, South of the Washington Monument, Washington, 20242, DC

Thomas Jefferson is easily one of America’s most important forefathers. He authored the Declaration of Independence, served as an international diplomat during the Revolutionary War, helped push the American people toward independence from British tyranny and is heavily regarded as one of the most brilliant early American thinkers.

This simple, refined and visually stunning memorial to America’s third President is perfectly fitting to his life and career. The 19-foot statue, housed in a beautiful column-laded Roman temple-styled building, is sculpted from bronze and pays homage to his larger-than-life legacy. You’ll also find plenty of Jefferson’s most popular quotes, laid into the round walls of the structure’s interior.
