Exclusive to the National Archives Store, this one-of-a-kind marble ornament is made in the U.S.A. A cheery reminder of the hope of spring, this delightful design makes a lovely souvenir of Washington, D.C.’s remarkable cherry blossom season.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
