In 1833 the Washington National Monument Society was organized for the purpose of erecting a great National Memorial to George Washington. Five years later, plans calling for an elaborate Greek Doric rotunda at the base of an Egyptian-style obelisk were drawn up by architect Robert Mills. Actual construction did not begin until 1848. By the time the monument was completed, Mills' design was simplified to the austere marble and granite obelisk that exists today. Due to many delays and complications, the monument did not open to the public until 1888.

The monument stands 555 feet 5.125 inches high the tallest masonry structure in the world. An elevator takes visitors to the 500-foot level for a breaktaking view of the nation's capitol. Advance arrangements can be made to walk down the 898 steps. Lining the stairs are 190 memorial stones that were donated by local, state, and foreign governments.
