Jefferson Memorial

34 anmeldelser
Set on the south bank of the Tidal Basin amid the cherry trees, the Jefferson Memorial honors the third president of the United States, drafter of the Declaration of Independence and founder of the University of Virginia: Thomas Jefferson. Designed by John Russell Pope to resemble Jefferson's library, the memorial's columned rotunda is similar in style to the Pantheon in Rome.

On the Tidal Basin side, a sculptural group above the entrance depicts Jefferson with Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston, all of whom worked to draft the Declaration of Independence. Inside, travelers will find a 19-foot (6-meter) bronze likeness of Jefferson, along with excerpts from his writings etched into the walls. Visit in late March or early April to see the cherry blooms outside in shades of pink.
