Monument is located 40 miles south of Denver, just north of the United States Air Force Academy 15 minutes from Colorado Springs. Monument was first settled as a stop along the Rio Grande Railroad in 1872. The area was incorporated as a town called Henry's Station in 1879, but the name was changed to Monument in 1882, when it was named after Monument Creek and Monument Rock.
Today Monument is a popular destination for those wanting to live an active outdoors lifestyle. The Santa Fe Trail, a beautiful hiking and biking path, runs through Monument. The Pikes Peak National Forest borders Monument, giving residents outstanding views and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, camping, boating and fishing. Monument has approximately 7,000 residents.
