The Columbus Monument and Piazza in Pueblo, Colorado, is the first and now
last remaining Columbus Monument west
of the Missisppi.
It is National Historical Registered Monument and was gifted to the City of Pueblo in 1905 by the immigrant community made up of a large Italian contingnt and immigrants from Europe and ven Asia, and remains a symbol of thanks and respect for being able to be a part of the United States of America.
The Monument was paid for in cash, and at that time, cost $10,000 and took the organizers nearly 10 years to save and collect that amount from the citizenry, which is equivalent to more the $290,000 in today's dollars!
The City of Pueblo maintains the grounds and street rights-of-way for the Monument, and the Sons of Italy Lodge No: 2738 made a commitment to protect the Monument Piazza as part of its charter and ongoing lodge operations in the community.
The stone work for the Monument was performed by Italian stone masons and the bust was cast as one piece in Bronze and it is heavy!
