The monument was erected in the 1950’s and President George Albert Smith dedicated the monument.

At the unveiling a member representing the township said this about Brigham Young:

“The name Brigham Young has become accepted as a symbol of perseverance, courage to bear difficulties, and capacity to surmount them. This monument is a fitting tribute to a great American, Whitingham’s famous son.”

Ownership Status:

The large monument is located just beyond left field line of a softball field at the Old Whitingham Center. It is open to the public at no charge. The smaller marker is in the front yard of a private residence but it can be viewed from the public street (Brigham Young Hill, also known as Stimpson Hill).
