WELCOME to the Memorial to
The Memorial to Thomas Jefferson will be created
on existing federal land within the boundaries of Cape Disappointment
State Park. The memorial would be approximately 20 acres in size and
owned and managed by the National Park Service as a part of Lewis and
Clark National and State Historical Parks.
The developed portion of the memorial would be a
fraction of the 20 acres and located to utilize existing visitor
service facilities associated with the Lewis and Clark Interpretive
Center. Currently no funding exists for the planning or design of the
Memorial To Thomas Jefferson.
Thomas Jefferson, the country�s third
president, envisioned a nation from �sea to shining sea,� and the
Memorial To Thomas Jefferson would commemorate that vision. The
memorial would be located near the Lewis and Clark Information Center
overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
The visitor would gain an understanding of the
fulfillment of Jefferson�s dream for the Nation through the
relationship between this site and the Jefferson National Expansion
Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri.
The location of the memorial will be designed to
utilize the existing visitor service facilities associated with the
Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center.
