Friday Trivia! So About the George Washington Masonic National Memorial…

Update 6:45 p.m. — Two-thirds of you were correct! The George Washington Masonic National Memorial is based on the Lighthouse of Alexandria.

We’re trying a new thing for Alexandria.

Every Friday (maybe) we’ll post a trivia question at 9:30 a.m. Comments are disabled to keep people from posting the answers. Play fair, make your best guess, and check back in at 3 p.m. when we post the answer.

For today’s trivia question, we’re starting off easy.

The George Washington Masonic National Memorial is Alexandria’s most iconic building and in 2015 was designated a National Historic Landmark. Construction on the building began in 1932, but the design of the memorial is inspired by an older building.

This week’s trivial question: which building was the George Washington Masonic National Memorial based on? Is it the Washington Monument, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the House of the Temple in D.C. or Big Ben?
