The National WWI Memorial



The National World War I Memorial at Pershing Park is a planned memorial commemorating the service rendered by members of the United States Armed Forces in World War I.

The National World War I Memorial at Pershing Park is a planned memorial commemorating the service rendered by members of the United States Armed Forces in World War I. In 2014, Congress authorized the World War I Centennial Commission to develop the WWI Memorial in Pershing Park, located at 14th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, DC. Pershing Park also contains the John J. Pershing General of the Armies commemorative work. In January 2016, the WWI Centennial Commission selected the winning concept design by Joseph Weishaar, Sabin Howard, Phoebe Lickwar, and GWWO, Inc., Architects. In May and July 2017, the Commission of Fine Arts and the National Capital Planning Commission unanimously approved the concept design for the WWI Memorial at Pershing Park.
