By itself it is just a usual pillar – not bigger or much different than many others. However it is located in the center of the downtown and you’ll probably pass it anyway.

I had this on my list to see but it wasn't that big of deal. This monument stands in the middle of town so you can't miss it. Also if you decide to walk the Urban Trail you can't miss it.

The monument is simple enough but the area is a great place for people watching. Lot of art and music here when I walked by. Great place to catch your breath and hangout.

It is a nice obelisk, but nothing overly special. The park that it sits in is really the attraction. This does make a good landmark to guide yourself around by.

Go back in time to the views of Tom Wolfe and the sounds Bill Monroe or the smells of Bill Stanley barbecue. Thanks for the memories Bill Monroe!

The monument itself is nothing special although they had it lit up like a tree at night which made it look pretty cool. It's just something to see quickly a you are walking by.

Not much to see here. Big stone obelisk with a name at the bottom. There was an artist market here when I was there and that was the only attraction.

Didn't even mean to see this but stumbled across it. Seriously just a stack of rocks. Not really an attraction.

This was a nice landmark in the middle of town, it makes finding your way around pretty easy. Of course there was some kind of protest going on in front of it, but once everyone cleared out, it was quite nice and I enjoyed it.
