Monument of the Americas

Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Monument of the Americas?

It is a private sculpture and manicured meditation garden in the grand tradition, honoring America’s divine founding, and the Founding Fathers and Documents. The scripture which speaks most of America and it’s prophetic destiny is illustrated in over 50 bronze sculptures—even the Book of Mormon.

An 18-ft tall sculpture of the Savior is the center of the garden and His teachings the central theme. There will be waterfalls, fountains, flowers and ornamental trees, and private walkways with sculptures with scripture for quiet reflection.

There will be an art studio and visitor center which can also be used for juried art shows or wedding receptions and social events. There will be an amphitheater for summer concerts and youth outings.

The first building to be built on the site will be the sculpture studio. This will double for the visitor center temporarily and remain on-site as an art school.
