Looking across the water at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Jefferson Memorial

Situated on the south side of the Tidal Basin, in West Potomac Park, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial is one of the city’s picturesque landmarks. Dedicated in 1943, on the 200th anniversary of Jefferson’s birth, this simple circular classical white marble monument is in keeping with a style much favored by the third U.S. president, architect, scholar, and political thinker.
