National Mall &
Memorial Parks

Established as a National Park in 1965, the National Mall & Memorial Parks is the unit of the National Park Service that includes some of America's most recognizable and beloved sites, including:
  • African American Civil War Memorial
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
  • Korean War Veterans Memorial
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • National Mall
  • National World War II Memorial
  • Smithsonian Institution
  • Thomas Jefferson Memorial
  • United States Capitol
  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial
  • Washington Monument
  • World War II Memorial

According to the National Park Service, the National Mall & Memorial Parks provide "ample opportunities to commemorate presidential legacies; honor the courage and sacrifice of war veterans; [and] celebrate the United States' commitment to freedom and equality." Each year, about 1.5 million tourists visit the National Mall & Memorial Parks to see for themselves some of the most enduring symbols of American history and heritage.

The sites not only celebrate history, but also have served as places where history has been made in many ways since they were created. The National Mall, for example, was the site of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, the Vietnam War Moratorium Rally in 1969, and the massive March for Women's Lives in 2004. It is also the site of the annual July 4 Capitol Fourth fireworks display and other major events throughout the year. The Lincoln Memorial was the site of Marian Anderson's defiant performance of "God Bless America" in 1939, and the Jefferson Memorial is home to the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival.

Perhaps most importantly, the Mall is also home to each presidential inauguration, with the president-elect being sworn in before the Capitol and the onlookers stretching back towards the Lincoln Memorial. The 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama was likely the largest event ever held on the National Mall, with an estimated three million people in attendance.
