Overview

This monument was erected in 1990 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the arrival of residents into the Anchorage area. Beginning with the 1915 settlement of Tent City (in the Ship Creek area several blocks from this monument), this city went on to grow and prosper. The monument also celebrates January 3, 1959, the date when Alaska was declared one of the United States by President Eisenhower. This monument offers a nice vantage point from which to view the valley where it all began. No admission.
