Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Dedicated by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (whose own Memorial sits just across on the Tidal Basin), on April 13, 1943, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial stands in a straight line with the White House. Architect John Russell Pope, influenced by Jefferson’s taste in classical architecture, echoed the style seen in Jefferson’s two most famous buildings – Monticello and the University of Virginia Rotunda.
