Custer Monument Historic Site

A bronze statue stands on the site of George Armstrong Custer's birthplace.  Only the foundation of the house remains at this roadside park and picnic area.  Visitors at the exhibit pavilion may read about Custer's life and the spirited qualities of the young soldier whose "Last Stand" has made his name a household word.  Custer, born in 1839, became famous as a daring cavalryman during the Civil War.
