"... Brigham Young is said to have spoken in the foothills of Emigration Canyon: 'This is the right place. Drive on.' The monument was dedicated during Utah's pioneer centennial celebration in 1947. The granite structure stands sixty-feet high and eighty-six feet long. It memorializes, in bronze sculptures, the Mormon pioneers, as well as the traders, trappers, explorers, and others."--Utah History Encyclopedia.
