Great memorial; poorly kept

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... read more

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...

Mr. Mason's efforts had a profound impact on U.S. History, but is often lost due to ineffective history teachings and apathy. Study his efforts, they impact you even today. This memorial is quiet and off the Tidal Basin, and it's a good visit.

I took a group of students there last week after walking around the Jefferson Memorial. George Mason is not too far on the other side of the street next to a fountain. The statue is very nice and the students loved sitting on it to take some pictures. It is a nice Memorial but nothing in comparison to the other... More

George Mason was quite a guy, according to Thomas Jefferson. I learned a little something about George Mason at this simple, but pretty memorial, right next to the Jefferson Memorial. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by, it appears few tourists do. But plenty of joggers in the area enjoying the solitude of the monument and surrounding park.

They have a very informative sign in front of the Memorial that talks about him and why he is important. Nice little fountain there as well. Very quiet.

I was walking around in the park and noticed this lonely guy resting on a park bench. I had no idea who he was but figured he must be important since there's a memorial about him. Could be some more information about him.

It is near the Jefferson Memorial. It is much smaller but still very nice. There are signs to guide you there. He was very important to our country and adults and kids alike would benefit from knowing more about him.
