The Jefferson Memorial (formally, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial) is a United States Presidential Memorial in Washington D.C. for Thomas Jefferson. It combines a low neo-classical saucer dome with a portico. By 1930, there were monuments in Washington D.C. commemorating great U.S. Presidents. President Franklin D. Roosevelt thought that Thomas Jefferson also deserved a monument. On June 26, 1934, following his initiative, Congress passed a resolution to create a monument commemorating Jefferson. The Jefferson Memorial bears some resemblance to the Pantheon of Rome. This miniature 24K crystal landmark replica of The Jefferson Memorial makes a beautiful room decor gift.
