Dedicated in October, 1997, this project is the newest memorial constructed in the Nation's Capital, located at the end of Memorial Drive and is anchored by the Lincoln Monument.
The memorial was constructed within the historic Court of Honor, designed by McKim, Mead, and White (of the Girl on the Red Velvet Swing scandal), and was originally built as the Army-Navy Memorial, a "Works" project during the Great Depression. This new work includes complete restoration of the existing historic granite walls, balustrade, pylons and gates, as well as construction of new interior spaces, fountains, terraces, and plazas.
Professional Restoration, Inc. performed all restoration of the existing granite elements, as well as supplying and installing new granite and marbleincluding a 350' long, 30' high "floating" marble wall, a 120' diameter granite pool, new steps, paving, curbs, and assorted decorative elements.
