The Washington Monument is the Nation's first civic memorial to George Washington. Built in the neo-classical style, the 178'8" monument was designed by architect Robert Mills and was completed in 1829, fourteen years after construction began. Mills also designed our more famous sister monument in Washington, D.C.
The Monument held a profound meaning for 19th Century Americans and it is even now recognized as the preeminent symbol of the city of Baltimore. It is because of the Monument that Baltimore earned the nickname "The Monumental City."
The Washington Monument and squares of Mount Vernon Place are managed by the non-profit Mount Vernon Place Conservancy in partnership with the City of Baltimore.
