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.

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.
