The Monument, which features Gothic and Egyptian styled elements, is a rock-faced granite obelisk that stands 154 1/2 feet (49 meters). Aptly located in the Village of Victory, the Monument is situated on a high bluff upon the grounds of Burgoyne’s last camp and overlooks the scenic Hudson Valley. The cornerstone was laid on the 100th Anniversary of the American victory at the Battle of Saratoga.

Saratoga Monument is administered by the National Park Service, United States Department of the Interior. It is one of four sites that comprise the Saratoga National Historical Park.
