Bunker Hill Monument
The Bunker Hill monument stands at 221 feet tall and commemorates the Battle of Bunker Hill, the first major battle of the American Revolution. The monument was built from 1827 to 1843 on the summit of Breed's Hill, the actual site of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
Fun Fact: The ten acres of land that surround the battlefield were sold between 1838 and 1843 to finance the completion of the monument.
