The miniature Washington Monument on Interstate 55 in Ridgeland is a cell phone tower. The mayor and city of Ridgeland thought that the miniature obelisk would be more visually appealing than the common metal structure.

Washington Monument Replica Obelisk
North of Jackson, Mississippi-Highway 55, there is an obelisk that looks like a smaller version of the Washington Monument in D.C. made of white marble, complete with the little windows on top.
The last two trips through there it was pouring down rain, dark (it's lit at night)with rain but there was a lot of road work going, so I couldn't pull over and get a photo. So the last time I was by I had my daughter get a photo from the back seat of the car while traveling northbound.
