Detailed Description

The Washington Monument, made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss, commemorates the first president of the United States. It is the tallest stone structure, and is made of two kinds of marble due to a gap in funding. The monument was damaged in the 2011 Virginia earthquake, but has since been repaired.
