Friends of Pompeys Pillar

We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established in 1989 to support Pompeys Pillar National Monument, which contains the last remaining inscription of the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803-1806. Our mission is to preserve and protect the Monument by educating visitors through interpretation, special projects, and by supporting the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in its management of the site. The effort of the Pompeys Pillar Historical Association was a driving force to get this site into the public lands domain, which resulted in the purchase of the historical land from the Foote family by the BLM in 1991. By working cooperatively with the BLM in the planning and administration of the site, the Pompeys Pillar Historical Association successfully accomplishes this mission.
