Washington Monument State Park is located about four miles from Boonsboro, Maryland. The park was created to preserve the Washington Monument, a 40-foot-tall tower that honors George Washington, the first President of the United States. The monument is located near the summit of South Mountain's Monument Knob. The original tower built in 1827, was the first monument dedicated to George Washington. The monument is a dry-laid stone tower and was built on July 4, 1827 by the citizens of Boonsboro. The monument site was popular meeting place for the Boonsboro folks, but weather and vandalism destroyed the monument. In 1920, the Washington County Historical Society bought one-acre site in 1920 and deeded it to the state to be used as a park. The tower was rebuilt in its current, with the original cornerstone and a copy of the original dedication tablet.
