The 221-foot (67 m) granite obelisk was erected between 1825 and 1843 in Charlestown. The monument was one of the first in the United States. There are 294 steps to the top.nAn exhibit lodge built adjacent to the monument in the late 19th century houses a statue of fallen hero Dr. Joseph Warren. nThe monument underwent a $3.7 million renovation, completed in 2007, that included repairs, handicap accessibility improvements, and new lighting.
