About The Jefferson Memorial Hall
The Jefferson Memorial Hall
was built to commemorate Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States. It was built and opened on the 200th birthday of Jefferson in 1943. It covers an area of 19.2 acres. It is mainly composed of a white open-air neoclassical marble Memorial Hall and a 5.8-meter-high bronze statue of Jefferson. The Jefferson Memorial Hall is located at the southern end of the tidal basin, facing Roosevelt Memorial Wall, Lincoln Memorial Hall, Washington Monument and other buildings across the bay. Jefferson was an outstanding bourgeois politician, revolutionist, thinker and educator in the United States. He was one of the "three founding heroes" of the United States and the main drafter of the declaration of independence. He served as the first Secretary of state and the third president after the founding of the United States, and personally planned and built the University of Virginia.
