A Piece of the Washington Monument

In 1849, each state in the Union was invited to furnish a block of native stone for the construction of
the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C.
Geologists selected stone from this quarry, then
owned by Wilford McDonald, as typical of the best
quality in Ohio. The dimensions of the limestone
block used in the Washington Monument, which was
cut and polished by Daniel Bunnell of Xenia, are
6 feet x 3 feet x 9 inches. The inscription on the
block of stone reads as follows: The State of Ohio/
The Memory of Washington / and / The Union of
the States / Sunto Perpetus
