10. Statue of Abraham Lincoln

This statue of Abraham Lincoln is located in Lytle Park and was dedicated in 1917 as a gift from Charles and Anna Taft. The statue is the work of sculptor George Grey Barnard and is one of only a few statues that show Lincoln without a beard. The statue is 11 foot tall and shows Lincoln with a weary expression. When the statue was first dedicated, it did not get a very favorable reception but for me, it is a unique piece of work and worthy of the man it portrays.
