This imposing memorial to George Washington, the Mason, 333 ft. high, will overlook the city of Washington to the north and Mt. Vernon to the south, while eastward at its foot lies Alexandria, which city he helped to plan. The building of unusual architecture and remarkable terraces, is modelled after the ancient towers which were used as beacons to guide mariners, as examplified in the beacon at Rhodes. The memorial will house a priceless collection of memorabilia of Washington, including many articles closely connected with his career in the Masonic order. It is being built by the George Washington Masonic National Memorial Association and will coat $4,000,000.
