Jefferson Memorial

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageA tribute to the primary author of the Declaration of Independence and the country's third President. The memorial was built on land reclaimed by the Potomac River, now known as the Tidal basin. It is a columned rotunda in the style of the Pantheon in Rome, whose classical architecture Jefferson himself introduced to this country. A 19-foot bronze statue of Jefferson atop a 6-foot black granite pedestal graces the domed interior of the memorial.
