Construction is underway for the American Heritage Project.
The "Your American Heritage Monument" will be located across from the Galaxy Theater in Atascadero.
Once complete, it will consist of a 40 foot flag pole supported by a concrete base.
The base will include four large bronze plaques with representations of the declaration of independence, constitution and tributes to veterans.
"This monument will be on a national registry of historic important monuments. It's the only one like it west of Washington DC and it's going to be quite something," said Chuck Ward of the "Your American Youth Heritage Project.
Chuck says the monument is to promote patriotism and educate our youth.
The dedication will be on July 2nd.
The project has been two years in the making, and has cost $90,000 of private funds to complete.
