A monument is any building or megalith surviving a past age that is regarded as having historical and social importance. They are often erected in memory of a person or event. These can take shape as a grave, memorial, or even head stone. Monuments may range from great marble busts or bronze statues to tomb stones and plaques. Universities may have markers or plaques to commemorate historical events that took place, like Kent state has a memorial and inscription describing what happened at the state university in 1970, with a photo. A cemetery may commemorate the past or honor great men and women that have passed on. There are plenty of terms that can inform an individual about monuments.

    A monument is a type of memorial. A monument may be a marker or headstone for a tomb or grave. A monument may also be a plaque designed to commemorate a historical or cultural event. A monument may be located most commonly at a cemetery or funeral park. But monuments may also be located at state parks or local university. If you're interested in purchasing one of these memorial markers, you ought to do some research first. Go online to get a better idea of the type of monument you'll need. If you're looking for a head stone for a tomb or grave, you'll probably want something appropriately somber and elegant. If you're looking for something for a photo tour or a park, you may want something a little flashier and more attention-grabbing. You also ought to compare monument supply companies before you purchase anything. Many of these companies offer urns and monuments in a variety of materials, at a variety of price points, and you'll want to make sure you choose the company that best suits you. Some companies specialize in reasonably priced granite and marble, for instance. Others specialize in more lavish bronze. You'll need to compare companies before you select one. You'll also need to ask each of these companies for a referral or two before you commission a custom inscription or hand over any money. A monument can be a beautiful way to remember a person or an event, and with a little research, you should be able to find the monument that's best for you.
