We all know about Thomas Jefferson. He authored the Declaration of Independence, served as our third President, and worked for education, religious freedom, and human rights. He was also an architect, horticulturalist, and scientist. A true Renaissance man.

This memorial was built during the 1930s, as part of President Roosevelt's New Deal jobs program. It's equally impressive by day and by night.

Address: 900 Ohio Drive, SW, Washington, DC 20024
Directions: Metro Stop: Smithsonian. It's on the northeast side of the Potomac, along the south bank of the Tidal Basin. This is just south of the National Mall.
