  • Simple monument. Represents the heritage of Dubuque, being lead mining. Worth seeing also it is near the old Star Brewery and river walk which are worth seeing in themselves.

  • Neat history, poor display. The city could benefit from extending the gardens of the river walk over to this area too.
