The Doric column rising 352 feet over Lake Erie was built between 1912 and 1915 with money raised by a commission formed by nine States, with matching funds from the Federal Government. The column, designed by Joseph Freelander, consists of 78 courses of pink Milford, Mass., granite topped by an 11-ton bronze urn. At the 1913 dedication on the centennial of the victory, the three British and three U.S. officers killed in the battle were reinterred beneath the memorial floor.
