Organized in 1833.

From the description of Treasurer's records, 1849. (The South Carolina Historical Society). WorldCat record id: 37522236

Washington National Monument Society was organized in Sept. 1833. The society was governed by a board of thirteen managers. In 1855-1858, the Society was under the control of the Know-Nothings who created their own Board of Managers. Due to this conflict and the Civil War, the construction lagged until 1876 when the Congress took over the project.
