    I'll accept this street sign but moving forward street signs are not included in this pointless prize. My purpose was for this prize to include specific monuments and memorials, and while I understand a street sign can be interpreted as such it was not my original, though not specifically stated, intent.

    Memorial marker to note the lynching of Joseph H. McCoy on April 23, 1897.



    Mr. McCoy was one of at least two Black men lynched by White mobs in Alexandria. A tragic and sobering part of our history.

    Corner of Lee and Cameron Streets
    Alexandria, Virginia

    This is the 'other' Washington Monument in the area.

    It is not accessible via bicycle (nor is it visible), but the sign has a mini version of the monument. The hiking trail up to the monument has signs about George Washington, starting at birth and ending at death. It is way cooler than the one in DC!!

    @hokiebethThought the street sign was a punt. Okay if you don't count it. Just having fun playing. Non-competitive participation here...

    The Sonny Bono Park covered in snow. The tale that I heard was that someone approached Cher if she would like to buy a park in DC to memorialize Sono Bono. She agreed but didn't realize it would be such a small park, more like a traffic triangle, and was mad afterwards. According to Wikipedia, this land was purchased and revitalized by a friend of Sonny Bono and includes a vault of some memorabilia of the musician. Although sparse, the park is quite lovely in the spring.

    1/5/2022. Used to be a monument for the American Air Force base in Torrejon de Ardoz, Spain. But it closed down in 1991 and now it is solely a Spanish Air Force base.
