It was built to honor George Washington, the first President of the United States, and is located in the heart of Washington, D.C., at the center of the National Mall.
The monument was designed by architect Robert Mills and was completed in 1884, after a long and tumultuous construction process that spanned over three decades. It is made of marble, granite, and sandstone, and it is topped with a pyramid-shaped capstone and a lightning rod.
The Washington Monument is an iconic symbol of the United States and is a popular tourist destination, attracting millions of visitors each year.
