Located atop South Mountain, Washington Monument State Park is named for the first completed monument dedicated to the memory of George Washington. The Washington Monument is a rugged stone tower that was initially erected by the citizens of Boonsboro in 1827. The monument makes it an ideal site for spotting migratory birds such as hawks, eagles and falcons, especially in mid-September. The main office for South Mountain State Battlefield is located in Washington Monument State Park. Stop by the park office or museum to learn more about the first major Civil War battle fought in Maryland. The main parking area, picnic pavilion and museum are accessible to the mobility impaired. The comfort station, however, is not.
