Monument 2

This is the second of the five as yet located monuments. It is situated on the side of a ridge one quarter of a mile from the high point. It is seven feet tall, five feet wide at the base. It has two extensions from the base that form puews that flank the monument.

This Monument is not in line with the other monuments that we have located. There is one entry in one of the old historys of Springfield that would see to indicate that this Monument was built as a memorial to a woman in the early 1800's. The construction is simular to monument 1 and monument 3 that may of influenced its construction.

This Monument is the only one that has extensions built off the base. It has what appears to be two puew's constructed that face each other. A person sitting on one of these would have a view up and down the ridge.

The rock work is of good quality but may of been rearranged by some of the local visitors. A short path connect this monument to a logging road that follows the ridge line.

The Monument is built on a flat outcroping of bedrock. The Rock in this area is very near the surface in most places.
