Long Description:
The national mall starts at the Lincoln memorial in the west and ends at Capitol Hill in the east. There are many memorials and museums and they are all free. The most famous is the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian Museums. The National Mall gets an average of 24 million visitors per year! The mall consists of the area between the U.S. Capitol Building and the Lincoln memorial. This includes the Reflecting Pool, and the grass field near the capitol building. Every July 4th, this place is paced with tourist to be in the nation's capitol viewing the events on Capitol hill. The washington Monument acts at the center for the mall. The idea of the mall came about when Lafayette was hired by George Washington to construct a grid-like structure for the streets. Centuries latter, his plan still proves to be revolutionary. He is credited for the idea of a National Mall, although president Washington was the one who founded the 10 by 10 mile square diamond along the Potomac that became home to the national city.
