Description

In 1824, The Square was named after a French marquis who served in the War of the Revolution. Under Thomas Jeffersons' presidency, it was part of the White House grounds, but set aside when the Pennsylvania Avenue proposals were approved by John Adams. As well as four horse-mounted statues to foreign veterans of the American Revolution, The Square features walking trails and formal hedges.
