Notes Mt. St. Alban, now building, will fulfill George Washington's dream of "a church for national purpose." Not since the 14th century has a Gothic cathedral like this been built. In five years one of the finest cathedrals in the world, larger than Westminster Abbey, will rise above the city higher than the Washington Monument. The area and elevation of the Cathedral Close are the same as Solomon's Temple Plateau above Jerusalem. Length 500 feet, height 262 feet. The Cathedral is now the last resting place of the late Woodrow Wilson.
