Butler County Soldiers, Sailors & Pioneers Monument


category : Other Attractions
Located at High & Monument Avenue in Hamilton, this Butler County monument stands proudly at the 1790s site of Fort Hamilton on the Great Miami River. Dedicated July 4, 1906, the $71,266 three-story structure was erected by grateful citizens to ?perpetuate the memory of the soldiers, sailors and pioneers of Butler County.?

Notable features are colorful windows, including two large displays that honor the service of women during the Civil War. Most prominent is Billy Yank, a 17-foot, 3,500-pound Civil War soldier proclaiming victory that was designed and built by Rudolph Thiem, who learned sculpture and model making in Germany before migrating to Hamilton. Military displays are housed within. See the restored 1804 Monument Cabin while visiting.
