Annotation

Statue of Christopher Columbus donated to Columbus Hospital in Great Falls, Montana, by Knight Daniel Tracy in 1908. After the hospital merged with another and changed its name, the statue was donated to the Great Falls Council 1493. The statue was restored and placed in Mount Olivet Cemetery beside a Knights of Columbus memorial to unborn children, and dedicated to all Knights and their families.

It is a close copy of the statue in Saint Louis.
