The marble Doric column towers 178 feet with a statue of George Washington at its crown. The reward for climbing the steep, winding 228 steps is a bird's-eye view of Baltimore. The base contains a small museum with exhibits chronicling the architecture and development of the monument, which took nearly 15 years to build (1815-1829).
