It stands pretty close to Jefferson memorial. George Mason was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in Philly. I like him because he was anti-slavery. A man ahead of his time.

Awesome memorial in a beautiful park that is lined with flowers and trees. There is a nice fountain in front of it. Mason is sitting on a big "bench" so to speak and you can sit right by him. It is so huge and amazing. A must see when you're by Jefferson Memorial in Potomac Park.

So this may not be a top destination on a city tour, but I'd highly recommend it. I learned about a man that both Jefferson and Washington looked up to and whose ideas informed the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. I found the charge he gave to his son very challenging: would I risk everything I have... More

This small memorial is just across the street from all the other memorials. It's on the cherry tree trail. It's a lovely memorial which doesn't get enough honor. We happened across the George Mason Memorial while on a volksmarch. Although I'd visited the area before with tour guides no one had pointed this lovely memorial out to us. It features... More

When George Washington calls George Mason 'the wisest man of our generation' I take notice. When Thomas Jefferson calls George Mason a mentor. I wonder why I have not noticed this superhero of the creation of the United States before. I admit my history may not be at a scholarly level, however this man is really important. His contributions helped... More

This is a small memorial located just a short walk from the much larger and more impressive Thomas Jefferson memorial. There's a small statue of George Mason and you can get some nice pics next to it. The rest of the memorial is really nothing particularly special.

First, this is very close to the Jefferson Memorial. However, it's tucked away. I came by during the middle of the day, and I was the only one there! I got some pictures, but I felt bad it was so poorly kept.

This memorial is only 13 years old and is so unkempt!! Weeds are the only thing in the flower beds. No flowers have been planted. The grass on the lawn is nonexistent. Again, only weeds. The only flowers are dandelions. The inscriptions need too be power washed. Just so sad to see this. Total bummer.

Forgotten founding father George Mason has not yet been quite forgotten. His memorial is nicely done, off to the side as you walk from FDR to Jefferson. It's especially nice when the flowers are in bloom, but also if you're just on a stroll.

Just south of the Jefferson Memorial and across the way from the Washington monument, this out-of-the way area is the home of the George Mason Memorial.. As the author of the bill of human rights adopted by the Virginia legislature, he laid the foundation for many of the concepts and some of the language in the Declaration of Independence and...
