Washington Monument, Washington, D.C.
This monument honors George Washington, the first President of the United States. The structure is 555 feet and 5 inches (169.3 meters) high and weighs an estimated 91,000 tons. The color of the upper two-thirds of the monument is noticeably different from the lower third as a result of a delay in construction due to the Civil War. Construction began in 1848 and was completed over 30 years later. For five years, it was the world's tallest structure, until the Eiffel Tower took the title in 1889.
