Its original name was Henry Station and when the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad came through, its name was changed at the request of the railroad's President. Henry Limbach, the town first mayor approved the request. Monument the town is named for the natural rock formations West of the town's center.

None. Colorado and Arizona only share a border at the Four Corners Monument and they have no river near the monument.

The Dinosaur National Monument is located in the Uinta Mountains, on the border of Colorado and Utah. The monument is located in both states; most of the monument is in Moffat County, Colorado, but the dinosaur quarry that contains hundreds of dinosaur fossils is located in Utah.

No, Dinosaur National Monument is a noun, a proper noun, the name of a specific place on the Colorado Utah border. A proper noun is always capitalized.A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun in a sentence. The pronoun that takes the place of the noun Dinosaur National Monument is 'it'.Example: We visited the Dinosaur National Monument on our trip. It contains many dinosaur fossils.
