U.S. Navy Memorial

U.S. Navy Memorial and Naval Heritage Center (701 Pennsylvania Ave., NW; Dedicated: 1990; Architect: Conklin Rossant; Sculptor: Stanley Bleifeld). Washington, DC’s city designer, Pierre L’Enfant, included a Navy Memorial in his original plans for the city, but no actions were taken on L’Enfant’s intent until 1977, when the Navy Memorial Foundation was established. The memorial is an amphitheater-like construction featuring a 100-foot, 108-ton granite map—the largest in the world. The map is framed by two sculpture walls with 22 bronze reliefs that honor aspects of naval service. A seven-foot tall bronze statue entitled “Lone Soldier” stands at the entrance to the U.S. Navy Memorial, representing all past, present and future Navy servicemen and women
