Biographical or historical data
The Statue of Liberty replica was dedicated July 9, 1936 on the Lawrence Common for Harvey “Pop” Bacon who founded the North Essex Boy Scouts Council. The scouts themselves raised the money. The statue is an 8.5 foot tall replica of the statue in New York harbor. It stood on a base of rock face granite in a walled plot. The first rededication took place July 9, 1950. The bronze statue was rededicated in 1989 after the restoration by sculptor Charles Jones of Boston. The statue had been vandalized and acid rain had been eating away at the surface. The restoration cost was $8000 paid for by the Lawrence Arts Lottery Council and private donations. In the early nineties the statue was moved to the Lobby of the Lawrence Public Library, 51 Lawrence Street.
