WASHINGTON MONUMENT: DC's tallest landmark reopens for tours after earthquake shutters the monument!

 

 

It's the monument to the manhood of George Washington, the FIRST AMERICAN PRESIDENT and the great GENERAL who laid the smack down on British oppression and whatnot, and it's standing erect, ready to receive visitors once again! 

 

After an earthquake shuttered and cracked the venerable monolith three years ago, a public-private partnership rehabbed the obelisk, buoyed by a substantial contribution from Billionaire David Rubenstein, who dropped $7.5 MILLION to help with repairs. 

 

For a fee, you can make advanced reservations to tour the tall, proud monument which defines the DC skyline. Click here for more.
