“The Forgotten George”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

This is really a nice memorial. They must have done some landscaping since the previous reviews because it looked really nice in June 2013. The fountain looked clean and hedge that surrounded the memorial was trimmed. This area is often overlooked which is unfortunate. If you are by Jefferson Memorial swing by and check out George Mason, he really isn't that far away.

“Poor George.”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

Poor George Mason, The father of the Bill of Rights. All he gets is a little memorial across the street (behind the Lincoln Memorial). People just walk right by & don't even know he's there. It's a nice family friendly memorial, with a fountain & flowers.

“A fun stop”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

A nice little lifesize bronze with a nice garden and some comfortable steps to enjoy a bit of lunch. George Mason was an important founding father and there is some reflecting to do at this site, but overall it is good for a quick breather on a tour of DC.

“Important Historical Figure, Minimal Memorial”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

George Mason was an important founding father, as important as all of the other founding fathers, but he got a little short changed with his memorial. They say he would have wanted it that way, but I doubt it if he had seen all of the other memorials to his peers!

This memorial was lacking the dedicated care that you would see at the Jefferson or Lincoln memorials, but yet again, you could stand there 20 minutes and no one else would visit.

This memorial is on the way from the Jefferson and FDR memorial areas.
