Founder and First President of the Republic of Turkey

The white stone building behind the statue, purchased under Ataturk in 1936, served as the embassy of the Republic of Turkey until 1989. It is now the embassy's official residence.

The two capitals, Ankara and Washington DC, became sister cities in October 2011.
Erected by the Ataturk Society of America on public space generously granted by the District of Columbia, this statue was dedicated on the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Turkey, October 29, 2013.
