George Washington Masonic Memorial

The George Washington Masonic Memorial on Shutter's Hill in Alexandria, Virginia is a memorial to George Washington as a Freemason. Its cornerstone was laid in 1923 and the building was dedicated in 1932.

The design of the George Washington Masonic Memorial was inspired by the lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Its overall architecture represents classical designs of Greece and Rome. Begining with the massive Parthenon inspired portico, the memorial rises 333 feet in three sections and is capped by an Egyptian pyramid.
