We enjoyed our brief stop here as we walked through the downtown area. The monument itself is oddly unique; the signs provide interesting information about the history of Anchorage and Alaska. From here you get good view of the port side of Anchorage, including the train depot. While standing at this point, it is astounding to see how this par of the city sunk so massively in the 1964 earthquake. Well worth a look.

Never saw this on our first trip to Alaska, noticed it as part of the trolley tour. It is interesting the history behind the monument. The educational placards up the hill from the train depot describe the early history of the town of Anchorage.

The monument includes an overlook of the birthplace of Anchorage. There are placards with photo's that tell the story of the original tent city. It is best to take in this site with a guide who can give you a better big picture view of the site, especially Alaska Railroad history.

Nothing much to see and the location is very bland and in an industrial area. The monument was named after Eisenhower as he was responsible for Alaska becoming the 49th state of the USA in 1959.

If you like things unique to an area, then this might be a good quick stop for you. It is just uphill from the train depot in a little pocket park with tall flags. Because Eisenhower signed Alaska into statehood, they have a statue honoring him and what he did. That is why this is unique to Anchorage. I just jumped out of the car for a quick pic and moved on.
