This is the Place

In Salt Lake City, there is a monument to the first Saints who entered the valley. The monument depicts Mormon pioneers from 1847, including the preliminary explorers, the main company, and the rear group, as well as the Donner party, fur trappers, and Spanish explorers. It's a wonderful memorial. Everyone who visits Salt Lake City should take the time to visit.

The monument is located at the This Is the Place Heritage Park. I'm familiar with the park because years ago I worked for the company that redid the landscaping. I laid out the walkways that you see now.

On the top of the obelisk, statues of Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball and Wilford Woodruff look out over the valley.


What I'd like to propose is another This Is the Place Heritage Park. This one would be in New York.
