1911: Pioneer Monument

 

In his 1909 plan, Frederick MacMonnies identified a site along the Broadway edge of the proposed Civic Center and just north of Colfax Avenue as a prominent location for public art and sculpture.  This became the setting for the Pioneer Monument - his 1911 French Beaux Arts sculpture that symbolically marks the end of the Smokey Hill Trail and commemorates Colorado's pioneers.
