Grave Of The Man Who Gave Us Angus Beef

Field review by the editors.

Victoria, Kansas

The Grant Memorial is a limestone pyramid, erected in 1943. In 1873 George Grant imported four Black Aberdeen Angus bulls from Scotland to Victoria -- the first Angus cattle in the U.S. On the centennial, in 1973, it was topped with a statue of an Angus bull.

Today, branding the word "Angus" on any fast food item imbues it with a magical, irresistible quality!
