The Washington Monument and Museum at Mount Vernon Place was the Nation's first civic memorial to George Washington. Built in the neo-classical style, the 178-foot 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. which opened in 1855.
The Monument held a profound meaning for 19th Century Americans and it is even now recognised as the preeminent symbol of the city of Baltimore.
Visitors are encouraged to climb the 228 steps to the top of the monument for one of Baltimore's best views!
