President Theodore Roosevelt laid the cornerstone in 1907, and on 5 August 1910 the completed 252' monument was dedicated by President William Howard Taft. It was then second in height only to the Washington Monument. The doorstep of the Eastham, MA, home of Plymouth Colony Governor (1634 and frequently thereafter) Thomas Prence is in the threshold of the west entrance.
