The Franklin Roosevelt Monument is huge!!
Dedicated on May 2, 1997 by President Bill Clinton, the monument, spread over 7.5 acres (3.0 ha), traces 12 years of the history of the United States through a sequence of four outdoor rooms, one for each of FDR’s terms of office.
At night the monument was especially powerful. There is a waterfall of a different design and significance in each of the “rooms”.
There were many interesting parts of the monument. Statues of FDR show how haggard and tired he become as his presidency drew on.
The monument was impressive in the dark. We were beat and did not walk up the steps. I was amazed at how many people were out at 10:30P sightseeing!
We did go visit the monument another day.
The tour was awesome and exhausting. There were tons of tour groups.
