George Washington Masonic National Memorial

Le George Washington Masonic National Memorial est une édifice maçonnique construit en l'honneur de George Washington, premier président américain et franc-maçon. Ce dernier appartenait à la loge 22 d'Alexandria.

Le George Washington Masonic National Memorial fut construit à partir de 1923 et achevé en 1932. Il est le seul bâtiment maçonnique soutenu et maintenu par les 52 Grandes Loges des États-Unis. C'est à l'opposé de la pratique maçonnique courante, où un bâtiment est seulement soutenu par la Grande Loge de l'état dans lequel elle réside. Le bâtiment abrite également la collection de la Loge Alexandria, qui contient la plupart des objets personnels de George Washington.
