WASHINGTON MONUMENT - UNITED STATES




The Washington Monument is an obelisk-shaped which rises 555 feet above the National Mall, following the design of architect Robert Mills ( by law, no other building in D.C. is allowed to be taller.) The monument began in 1848 and was not completed until 1884 to honor the first President of the United States of America, George Washington.
