Ames Monument

Now featured on my must-see list: the Ames Monument, a 6o ft tall pyramid located outside of Laramie, Wyoming and dedicated to the Ames brothers of Massachusetts and their role in building the Union Pacific. Designed by H.H. Richardson with plaques by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Authorized by company stockholders in Boston in 1875. Completed in 1882. Weird.
