About This Piece

Kit Carson is featured on top. Below the figure are cornucopias filled with fruit and vegetables. Below are bronze figures of The Hunter, The Prospector, The Pioneer Mother and Child, designed by the artist. 
Initially concieved in 1905 by members of the Denver Real Estate Exchange. They were supported by Mayor Speer, who promised a suitable site if the money for the statue was raised. The site chosen marks the end of the Smokey Hill Trail, which started in Abilene Kansas. Before the sculpture was erected, there was a pump house for the Denver Fire Department on the site.
