Washington Monument to Reopen Sept. 19

After millions of dollars have gone toward repairs and upgrades in the wake of damage that occurred following an earthquake eight years ago including the most recent challenge, an inoperable elevator, the District’s Washington Monument is back and ready for business.

According to the National Park Service, the national landmark will reopen Sept. 19.

An estimated 2.5 million have been unable to enter the structure since its on and off schedule for being open and admittedly the Park Service says it’s had its share of challenges.

But with 500,000 visitors per year, they’re ready for the chance to welcome the public to the monument which honors George Washington, a hero in the Revolutionary War and the nation’’s first president.
