Admiral Robert Peary Grave

Robert Peary was a naval officer and explorer. He was part of the team that surveyed a possible canal route across Nicaragua. He later made several attempts to reach the North Pole. His final expedition proved to be successful. Peary, along with his assistant Mathew Henson and four Inuit guides, reached the pole in 1909. His accomplishment was recognized by the U.S. Congress in 1911, and Peary was promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral.

His grave is marked by a monument of white Maine granite. The monument is topped by a smooth globe. There is a point on the globe that represents the North Pole. A three-inch bronze star is affixed to the location. The design is based upon one that Peary shared with his wife shortly before his death. The English translation of the monument’s Latin inscription is “I shall find a way or make one.”
