Theodore Roosevelt Island in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Making the Memorial
Construction on the memorial progressed from 1964 to 1967. The 18-foot-high bronze statue sculpted by Paul Manship shows President Roosevelt with one armed raised in his familiar speaking pose.
Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Plaza features the only monument in Washington, DC, dedicated to the 26th president of the United States. Flanked by four 20-foot-high monoliths inscribed with quotations from Roosevelt, the oversized centerpiece captures the larger-than-life spirit of the conservationist leader.
"It is true of the Nation, as of the individual, that the greatest doer must also be a great dreamer." – Theodore Roosevelt, 1905
