The granite monument erected by the State of Maine in 1855 in memory of William King, Maine's first governor, at his burial site in Maple Grove Cemetery, Bath.
Following King's funeral in 1852, the Masonic lodge in Bath, of which he had been a charter member and Grand Master, organized a procession, led by the Bath Brass Band and including local and state governmental officials, through Bath to the burial plot in Maple Grove Cemetery.
Also buried at that site are wife Ann, children Mary Elizabeth and Cyrus William, and Cyrus' wife, Sarah.
