George Mason Memorial
You'll find the George Mason Memorial just inland of the Potomac River, just southwest of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Commissioned in 2000 and completed in 2002, the George Mason Memorial honors the life of an early American Founder – George Mason wrote the Virginia Deceleration of Rights, was a delegate at the Constitution Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia, and is sometimes known as the "forgotten founder."
The memorial itself is 72 feet long in the shape of a stone bench with an over-sized statue of George Mason sitting, staring out over the Potomac River with his legs crossed. While many of the other national landmarks and memorials in DC receive most of the attention, the George Mason Memorial is an ideal destination on your next visit. Drive in from Arlington and check it out.
