A Fitting Memorial for Theodore Roosevelt

A Fitting Memorial for Theodore Roosevelt

The memorial to Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, is very unique! It’s not at all like any of DC’s other memorials. It’s an Island! It’s an entire island in the middle of the Potomac River.  It is 88 acres of wooded parkland dedicated totally to Teddy Roosevelt, as many people called him.

St John’s Episcopal Church is a lovely church with yellow stuccoed walls located at 16th and H Streets, across from the Lafayette Square in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. The cornerstone was laid on September 14, 1815, 15 years after President John Adams (second president of the United States) and his wife Abigail Adams, moved into the newly constructed White House.
