Local design students want your thoughts on the George Washington Masonic Memorial

An urban design student at Alexandria’s Virginia Tech campus is gathering some local feedback on the George Washington Masonic National Memorial.

The memorial — as longtime readers may remember from our short-lived local trivia series — was constructed in 1932 and was inspired by the Lighthouse of Alexandria in Egypt.

In the Bring Integrity Back to Alexandria Facebook group, design student Shelby Pollack asked for opinions about the memorial as part of a broader study of memorials throughout the region.

“I am an Urban Design student at Virginia Tech’s Alexandria Campus (WAAC) and am trying to gather information about what locals think of the Masonic Temple Memorial,” Pollack wrote. “I would love to hear any opinions that you have in the comments, or if you have a few minutes to fill out this survey I would greatly appreciate it!”

The survey asks locals if they’ve visited the memorial, how they get there, and a few other questions about their experience there.
