George Mason National Memorial
"An Open, Serene, Protected Environment"
Among the last to be sited on the grounds of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the George Mason National Memorial is set in East Potomac Park near the Tidal Basin. The memorial design reflects the site’s history as a Victorian garden as well as the Virginia patriot’s love of gardens. The project involved extensive research and features a fountain, a circular garden, and a sculpture of Mason surrounded by a trellis and hand-carved marble walls.
