Lincoln Monument

Commissioned by the Lincoln Monument Association, Randolph Rogers' statue Lincoln the Emancipator cost $33,000 when dedicated in 1871.

More details regarding the statue are available in IHA's Ocatavius Catto Education Portal.

In 2001 the statue was moved from its original location to its current location further east. If you look to the northwest, you'll see a mansion at the top of a hill. Follow Sedgely drive north and make your first left onto Lemon hill Drive to get there.
