Spanish American War Monument

Spanish American War Monument

Located at the corner of Pleasant Street and Highland Avenue, this bronze sculpture known as "The Hiker" was erected on November 20, 1938 and unveiled 40 years after the Spanish American War. It was created by Alice Ruggles, designer of at least 50 military monuments nationwide. "The Hiker" was created to honor the American soldiers who took "long hikes in the steaming jungles" during the war.
