NRHP Reference Number


Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac is located alongside the George Washington Memorial Parkway on the man-made Columbia Island, west of the 14th Street bridge that connects Arlington County with Washington, D.C., across the Potomac River. The 17-acre park was conceived shortly after President Johnson’s death, as a living memorial to our 36th president and within the Lady Bird Johnson Park, named for his wife. The Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac was designed by landscape architect Meade Palmer, who worked in close consultation with the former First Lady, and with Nash Castro, former Director of the National Capital Region of the National Park Service, who was chairman of the LBJ Grove Memorial Committee. A 19-foot tall, Sunset Red granite monolith was sculpted as the park’s centerpiece by Harold Vogel.
