Significance: The Ames family commissioned this monument to honor the memory of Oakes and Oliver Ames for their role in the building of the Union Pacific Railroad. The structure was designed by architect H.H. Richardson, with medallions by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It stood at the highest point on the transcontinental railroad until 1918, when the railroad was moved several miles south.
