The Washington Monument is closed until spring 2019 as The National Park Service is modernizing the elevator to increase long term reliability and safety. An essential DC site, the Washington Monument is the central point of the National Mall. The Washington Monument is the most prominent structure in Washington, D.C. The 555-foot, 5-1/8" marble obelisk honors the nation's founding father George Washington, who led the Continental Army to victory, and then became the nation's first president under the Constitution.
