The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in WDC, across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon. The designer of the statue of Lincoln was Daniel Chester French. The statue was carved by the Piccirilli Brothers. The painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin.
Dedicated in 1922, it has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations. The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two of his well-known speeches; The Gettysburg Address and his Second Inaugural Address. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom rally.
Like other monuments on the National Mall the memorial is administered by the National Park Service. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since October 15, 1966. It is open to the public 24 hours a day. In 2007, it was ranked 7th on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
