The Washington Monument is the Nation's first civic memorial to George Washington. Built in the neo-classical style, the 178-foot monument was designed by architect Robert Mills and was completed in 1829, fourteen years after construction began. Mills also designed our more famous sister monument in Washington, D.C. The Monument held a profound meaning for 19th Century Americans and it is even now recognized as the preeminent symbol of the city of Baltimore. It is because of the Monument that Baltimore earned the nickname "The Monumental City." The Monument is currently being restored, so the museum is closed.
It is the centerpiece of the squares of Mt. Vernon Place, east -west and north-south cruciform configuration dotted with statuary, a vibrant public space.
