Jefferson Memorial, Washington DC

Quiet and off the beaten track, I quite enjoyed visiting Jefferson.

The Jefferson Memorial … dedicated to Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826), one of the most important of the American Founding Fathers as the main drafter and writer of the Declaration of Independence, …

Construction of the building began in 1939 and was completed in 1943. The bronze statue of Jefferson was added in 1947.
