Presidential landmarks LINCOLN MEMORIAL, WASHINGTON D.C. Standing guard over the National Mall, this grand monument honours America’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Inside, below a roof supported by towering Doric columns representing the 36 states in the Union at the time of his death, sits a 19-foot-high marble statue of Lincoln looking out, stern-faced, towards the U.S. capital. MOUNT RUSHMORE, RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA Lincoln is one of four presidential figures depicted in the colossal 60ft carvings on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota’s Black Hills, the others being George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. Completed in 1941, the mountain sculpture attracts more than three million visitors a year. MOUNT VERNON & MONTICELLO, VIRGINIA Four of the nation’s first five presidents were from Virginia, among them its first, George Washington, and third, Thomas Jefferson. Washington’s Mount Vernon plantation estate is preserved on the Potomac River banks with a museum, gardens and restored working distillery. Jefferson’s Monticello home in the Blue Ridge Mountains is where he lies buried and features on the back of nickel coins. THEODORE ROOSEVELT NATIONAL PARK, NORTH DAKOTA This vast Badlands park was where a young 'Teddy' Roosevelt came to hunt bison in 1883. He bought two ranches, spending much of his time there after the deaths of his mother and wife just hours apart, before returning to politics and becoming president in 1901. The park, first created in 1947, preserves his original Maltese Cross Cabin and is something of a wildlife haven. THE SIXTH FLOOR MUSEUM, DALLAS, TEXAS Conspiracy theories still surround the assassination of John F. Kennedy during a presidential motorcade in Dallas in 1963.
