Freedom Plaza, Washington DC

Named in honor of Martin Luther King Jr who penned his famous 'I have a Dream' speech at the Willard Hotel on this square, the Freedom Plaza is a popular space for political protests and events in Washington DC.

Named in honor of Martin Luther King Jr who penned his famous 'I have a Dream' speech at the Willard Hotel on this square, the Freedom Plaza is a popular space for political protests and events in Washington DC. It is less than a half mile away from the White House.

Laid out with stone to designs by Robert Venturi, the centre of the plaza has a huge map of Pierre L'Enfant's original plan for the City of Washington. A time capsule containing a Bible, a robe, and other relics of Martin Luther King is buried here. At the west end is a large fountain, while the east end has an equestrian statue Kazimierz Pułaski, one of the 'Fathers of the American cavalry' and Revolutionary War general from Poland who once saved George Washington's life. The Freedom Plaza also has a commemorative plaque honoring the Great Seal of the United States.
