The Brigham Young Monument is a bronzed historical monument with statues of Brigham Young and others, located at Temple Square. Brigham Young was perhaps America's greatest colonizer, establishing over 350 settlements across the western United States, Canada, and Mexico. He was leader of the Mormon church and Utah's first governor. The bronzed statues of this Temple Square monument also include an Indian and a fur trapper, both of which preceded the Mormon pioneers settling Salt Lake City. The monument includes a list of the pioneers who arrived first in 1847. The Brigham Young Monument was created by a prominent sculptor, Cyrus Dallin, and first displayed at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.
