Front (South) Inscription: (Names of Bourbon County Confederates killed during War) To preserve the memory of heroic men, this memorial is erected by loving and grateful hearts.
Rear (North) Inscription: (Names of men from other states who died in Bourbon County, plus Bourbon County men who had died since end of War).
The Confederate Monument Association dedicated this memorial in 1887. The unusual form of the pillar, shaped like an obelisk but constructed of locally found stone mortared much like a chimney, and its size make it rather unique. The shaft itself is approximately 30 feet tall, on a ten-foot base.
