Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Thomas Jefferson Memorial

The words of Thomas Jefferson, some written more than 200 years ago, have shaped American ideals. Today, many of these impressive, stirring words adorn the interior walls of his memorial. The interior of the structure, which was modeled after the Roman Panthenon, contains a bronze statue of Jefferson and passages of from his writings engraved on the walls.

We hope you enjoy our work.
