On Memorial Day we stopped at Niles, Ohio on the way home from the lake to see the President McKinley Memorial. Unfortunately the library and museum were closed due to the holiday.
William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897 until his assassination on September 14, 1901. According to Wikipedia, McKinley led the nation to victory in the Spanish–American War, raised protective tariffs to promote American industry, and maintained the nation on the gold standard in a rejection of inflationary proposals.

Great shots and interesting post!
That is an impressive structure. Too bad you didn’t get to see the library or the museum.
I wish the museum had at least been open.
Not a president I’m familiar with, always good to know these things as you never know when they will pop up in some quiz or other.
Wow! I wouldn’t have guessed you could see monuments that large in the US except in DC.
Great photos : )
That’s a really beautiful monument- one I’ve never heard of before.
