Washington Monument

No, not THAT Washington Monument…

…THIS Washington Monument

Built in 1827 by the citizens of Boonsboro, MD, this 30 foot tall tower is the country’s first monument to President George Washington.  Click here to learn more.

Built atop South Mountain, just a stone throw from the South Mountain Battlefields of Turner’s and Frosttown Gaps, and just above the Washington County town of Boonsboro, a quick climb up the stairs of the monument offers a spectacular view toward Pennsylvania to the north…

…and out toward West Virginia to the south.

However, if you know just where to look, and you have yourself a good pair of binoculars, you can see a few of our favorite landmarks.

Do you see them?

Maybe this will help…
