The George Mason Memorial, dedicated on April 9, 2002, honors the little known but widely felt contributions of an important Founding Father. Born in 1725, George Mason wrote the Virginia Declaration of Rights and later attended the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The memorial is located in East Potomac Park near the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. It was commissioned by the NSCDA.
