Visited on 7/10/2017 (Monday): Before heading to the Jefferson Memorial from the FDR Memorial we stopped by the George Mason Memorial and was somewhat disappointed. It's a nice, quiet and deserted Memorial that has seen better days. Besides the small statue sitting on a stone...More

The defender of liberty is just near the Jefferson Memorial. It's a free pit stop. Parking is the same as Jefferson. Their are some walking trails from parking you can take for shortcuts.

The George Mason memorial is really close to the Jefferson Memorial, but it's tucked away just off the major roadway. It's actually worth walking on back there, although when we visited we had the place entirely to ourselves. It seems that it's a pretty low-trafficked...More

This Memorial is not crowded. At least not crowded in January. It is a nice memorial and I found it interesting as I felt compelled to read more about George Mason after seeing it. I saw it right after I went to the Jefferson Memorial....More
