This is the Monument of William McKinley, right here in my hometown of Canton, Ohio. He along with his wife and children are buried in this Monument. It is located in one of the beautiful parks we have running in a row in our town.
I remember this best as a place to go as a young girl to take pictures on Easter and also having fun running up and down the steps. Could never do that now. LOL.
Kids used to have lots of fun sled riding on the hills on each side of the steps.
There is also a museum located at the base now and it is very interesting to go through.
The first ladies library is located downtown Canton. It was the Saxton house, Mrs. McKinley's maiden name. McKinley and his wife lived in this house at one time.
I have visited a few times, and it is well done and well worth seeing. The ladies who are working each day, dress as one of the first ladies and take you through. There is a second location just down the street located in one of our old bank buildings.
