The Washington Monument  is the most prominent structure in Washington, D.C.

The 555-foot, 5-1/8″ marble obelisk was built between 1848 and 1884 as a tribute to George Washington’s military leadership from 1775-1783 during the American Revolution. He led the Continental Army to victory, and then became the nation’s first president under the Constitution.  Construction took place in two major phases, 1848-56, and 1876-84.  The monument was dedicated on February 21, 1885, and officially opened to the public on October 9, 1888. http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/wash/dc72.htm

The Washington Monument was closed for repairs from damage caused by the 5.8 magnitude earthquake on August 23, 2011, but is now open again.
