THE MUSEUM OF HISTORY IN GRANITE is a division of the 1973 Hall of Fame of Parachuting, a 501-c-3 tax deductible corporation.
A quarter century effort brought forth granite monuments including the
Marine Corps Korean War Memorial (1998), the History of French Aviation (2002), the History of the French Foreign Legion (2003), the eight monument History of Humanity (2005- ), the History of Arizona (2010), the History of the United States of America (2014), the History of California (2016) and now Animals of the World
The 100 foot granite monuments are designed to last 4000 years. There are no guarantees.
The monuments present history in an attractive art form. Over 700 etchings in granite illustrate the hundreds of panels of scholarly yet lucid text.
The Museum, now official candidate as a World Heritage Site, believes a self-directed search for knowledge may be the purest form of education.
These summaries of vast subjects provoke and encourage such efforts.
