  • It's a monument. There are some nice grassy areas and some benches to sit on and a nice view of the highway and river. There really isn't much to see other than the monument. We did however sit for a while on the benches and enjoy the weather as well as take a few different photos from different views. It pales in comparison to the Washington Monument but it looks very similar. Something to check out if you have nothing better to do I guess.
  • Not very much to it, but a cool little historic spot. The overview is just of a highway, so not much there. Pretty tall on person. Nicely maintained garden around it while I was there as well.
