The Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. is America’s foremost memorial to the third President of the United States. The circular, colonnaded structure is an adaptation of Neoclassical architecture, a style that was introduced to America by Thomas Jefferson. Architect John Russell Pope used Jefferson’s own architectural tastes in the design of the building. Construction began in 1939 and was completed in 1943.
The Jefferson Memorial is part of the National Mall and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
