Looking across West Point’s parade field, known as “The Plain”, one is immediately struck by the immensity of Washington Hall. It is flanked on one side by Eisenhower Barracks and on the other by MacArthur Barracks. Built of granite from the northeastern United States, the original section was completed in 1926. Expansions took place in the 1940’s and the 1960’s. The Cadet Mess Hall is in the building’s center and can accommodate 4,000 Cadets at one seating. In front of Washington Hall stands the equestrian statue of George Washington sculpted by Henry Kirke Brown. This statue was unveiled in 1916. Washington, first President of the United States and commander-in-chief of the American Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, was one of the leading proponents of the establishment of an American military academy.

CADET CHAPEL
The Cadet Chapel, also constructed of eastern granite, was dedicated in 1910. The chapel, blending well with the landscape, is pictured on the hillside overlooking Washington Hall. The chapel’s organ, begun in 1911 and enlarged by several memorial gifts, is now the largest church organ in the world. The chapel’s stained glass windows were executed by the Wittet Studio in Philadelphia. Inscribed with the motto of the USMA, “Duty, Honor, Country”, the Great Sanctuary Window was the first to be installed. The side windows are memorials gifted by various graduating classes. Silver plates, inscribed with the signatures of past Superintendants, such as MacArthur, Taylor, and Westmoreland are found on the first pew. On the skyline to the right of the Cadet Chapel, is Fort Putnam, one of several fortifications constructed in the West Point area during the Revolutionary War.

*Artist’s Note: There are 5 cadets in front of Washington Hall. How many can you count? Can you find Fort Putnum on the mountain?
