U.S. Landmarks

Originally, a landmark literally meant an important, or particular geographic point, (like a mountain, a cliff, or a river) used by explorers and others to find their way back or through an area. In modern use, it includes anything that can be recognized easily, such as a monument, building, or other structure. See below for more information about U.S. landmarks.
