Jefferson Memorial

900 Ohio Drive SW
Washington, DC 20024



The Thomas Jefferson Memorial, modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, is America’s foremost memorial to our third President. As an original adaptation of Neoclassical architecture, it is a key landmark in the monumental core of Washington D.C. The circular colonnaded structure in the classic style was introduced to this country by Thomas Jefferson. The present day location at the Tidal Basin was selected in 1937. Visitors can enjoy the beautiful cherry blossom trees surrounding the Tidal Basin and the Memorial during the spring months.
