    Even though I had worked downtown for years, it wasn't until recently that I finally learned all about the Admission Day Monument. It's funny how you can walk by something a million times and not really "see" it until you're "looking." What I finally see is a beautiful monument to one of California's most important days: its admission into the Union.

    If you happen to pass by, please don't overlook this statue as I did for the hustle and bustle nearby.

Description

Oh what a glorious day it must've been when California was admitted into the Union. And what better commemoration for the event than a golden statue? Another local work by renowned artist Douglas Tilden, the Admission Day Monument was dedicated on September 5, 1897. At the top of the statue is a glorious angel, in which Tilden lovingly designed after his wife.
