Additional Details:
The first monument erected to the memory of George Washington is located on top of South Mountain near Boonsboro, whose citizens built it in 1827. The original monument was gradually reduced to a state of near-ruins over the years, but it was restored in 1936 and is now a State Park, with picnicking and sanitary facilities and a good access road.
