  • Just average compared to other memorials and monuments in the area. It does, however, reside in a very picturesque area. If you are in the area, by all means make it a point to see it, but don't make ...  read more »
  • Memorial engraved signature of the 56 people who signed the Declaration of independence. I was looking at 1tsu1tsu. It seems a lot of names are known those of you who are interested in the history of the United States.

  • This a very nice memorial and tribute to the signers of the Declaration of independence. Although there was a ton of geese droppings on the island. 
  • This is a semi hidden garden and Monument to the original signers of the Declaration of Independence. The garden itself is beautiful. There is a very pretty pond and a nice view of the Washington Monument which reflects then the it's waters. The garden landscape Dennis meticulous. The monument to the 56 signers is a little small and could be kept up a little better though.
  • A simple memorial with glorious views of the National Mall. The 56 Signers is an easily and often missed memorial as its a bit off the beaten track on the north side of the mall between the WWII memorial and Vietnam War memorial. It consists of a small island with engraved marble slabs, one for each of the 56 signers of our Declaration of Independence. A true act of treason in its time, each signatory thereafter committed their fortunes and lives to the endeavor of the colonies freedom from England. I've never once visited and had other people around. A great place to relax and take some nice pictures.
  • I've lived in DC for 8 years and thought I had been to every DC memorial. This one proved that wrong. It's a small circular memorial in the Constitution Gardens to the right of the Reflecting Pool if you are facing the Lincoln Memorial. You walk over a wooden walk way to this little island with a slab of marble with each the signers signature and profession on it. It's fun to see the occupation of the Founding Fathers, many of whom were lawyers, farmers, and merchants. The best part of this memorial is the beautiful view of the Washington Monument. Since it's a little bit off from the main tourist area, it's a nice respite.
  • Greatest view of Washington Monument in DC
  • Beautiful park, water feature, and small island walkway!
