The San Jacinto Monument is the tallest masonry structure in the world. It is dedicated to the people that helped win Texas' independence from Mexico.
It is the second tallest monument in the world behind the St. Louis' Gateway Arch.

View of Smithsonian Castle taken from the observation floor of the Washington Monument.

Poorly planned roadway

I can't find any reference to the property donation of the land on which the Smithsonian Castle stand, and I find it curious that city planners of 1855 would decide to curve the roadway around only this building.

The walls of the monument are 15' at its base.

Original design?

Wasn't the original design supposed to have colums surrounding the tower?
