The National Geographic special presents the surprising story of the National Mall’s birth and evolution. Using a mixture of contemporary and archival footage, state-of-the-art graphics and fly-over aerials, The National Mall - America’s Front Yard traces the Mall’s, and the country’s, development. From its conception in 1791 by French-born artist Pierre L’Enfant to its current status as one of the most familiar and cherished icons of our democracy, the story of the Mall mirrors the story of the United States.
