  • This is breathtaking! I'm so glad I took the time to visit it. It stands so tall and stands for all that the United States should represent. It is splendid and should not be missed. 
  • Wanted to see this monument - so glad it was open the day we visited. There was a very nice ranger there to answer questions - he informed us upon arrival that the climb was 125 steps. 
  • I have been wanting to see this in person ever since seeing it on Kirk Cameron's documentary"Monumental." It was huge and very moving. Everyone should see and know about the story behind it!

  • Inspiring! Sitting below the monument with my wife praying for our nation and the world! Sadly most who came there just either drove or walked by not reading the inscriptions! One must read and take to heart the words and understand each statue! They really need to advertise it more and add some plaques on how to interpret the whole monument! Thanks to Kirk Cameron the world knows more about this great awesome place!
  • A quiet drive up an unassuming residential road ends suddenly as you discover one of the largest monuments you've ever seen of its type. Faith stands tall and dark against the sky; her compatriots perch quietly at her feet. I can't tell you what you'll feel, but a week later their granite stares still haunt and comfort me. The generous grounds magnify the monument's impact, and also the convenience of parking.
  • A must see for all Americans! See Kirk Cameron's movie, "Monumental," available on DVD and Amazon Prime has an interview that explains the monument in vivid detail. Impressive beyond measure!
  • Great place. Can't believe I live so close and never knew it was there.
  • Truly significant. It embodies our forefathers formula for a successful free society. The pinacle of the monument is FAITH. The components show how reliance on the Bible builds liberty.
