Monument

Monument is a swiftly growing town located at the base of the Rampart Range. Monument is bordered by Pike National Forest on the west, Colorado Springs and the United States Air Force Academy on the south, the City of Castle Rock on the north and rolling plains to the east. Residents enjoy recreational hiking and biking trails, fishing and other outdoor amenities. Once home to potato farming and ice harvesting, the town has grown to a community filled with small businesses, convenient retail centers, excellent schools, art and history. Monument enjoys unique galleries and boutiques, restaurants and business offices. During the holiday season the area is a favorite stop for locals and tourists to enjoy celebrations such as Small Town Christmas and arts and craft fairs. Summer finds the town filled with beautiful flowers, Art Hop events, a huge 4th of July Celebration, Concerts in the Park and several family summer activities.
