The Jefferson Memorial: Founding Father, Inscriptions & Inspiring Architecture

Surrounded by water and set among the spring-time cherry blossoms of West Potomac Park, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial is one of DC's most beautiful and revered memorials. Step into the Neoclassic memorial, resembling the Roman Pantheon, and marvel at the 19-foot statue of Thomas Jefferson under the memorial's awe-inspiring dome. Walk through the open-aired, columned memorial to read engraved panels with Jefferson's most inspiration quotes, including his call for American independence and man's right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Dedicated to the writer of the Declaration of Independence and third President of the Unites States, the Jefferson Memorial honors the Founding Father's many contributions to both the U.S. and humanity.
