The Cannon - Today at Monmouth College

The cannon is currently kept in the Huff Athletic Center at Monmouth College. The cannon is bolted to the ground in the athletic center to avoid a possible second attempt to steal the cannon by present and future students of Monmouth College. During homecoming football games, the cannon is moved to the football field, and the cannon is fired after each touchdown scored by the Monmouth College Football team.
