georgewashingtonbirthplacenm George Washington Birthplace NM’s obelisk, or monument, was erected in 1896, and moved to its current site at the entrance roundabout in 1930 when the construction of the buildings in the historic core displaced it.

When the work is completed, this artifact will be exhibited in our Visitor Center. The information collected during the process is stored in the artifact database to assist in proper artifact care.
