Celebrate the Memorial’s Cornerstone Centennial and receive a special ashlar made from the building’s original granite.
In 1923, thousands gathered at the Memorial to witness the dedication of its cornerstone. Now you can possess a portion of the Memorial’s original granite—the same material of which the cornerstone itself is made. Over the years, minor adjustments to the Memorial have required a small amount of the building's stone to be removed. Carefully crafted from this precious supply, the Cornerstone Centennial Ashlar can now adorn your lodge, office, or home.
The Cornerstone Centennial Ashlar is a 2 ¼-inch cube of New Hampshire pink granite, cut from the original stone of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, set into an 8 ½-inch wide cherry-wood base. Because of the scarcity of this stone, only 200 of these Ashlars can be produced. You can obtain yours today for a gift of $500 or more. This contribution will be used to offset the expenses of the February 2023 centennial celebration.
