The Abraham Lincoln statue in the public square in Hodgenville, Kentucky, was dedicated on May 31, 1909. Adolph Alexander Weinman sculpted the six-foot-tall statue, depicting Lincoln sitting in an Empire-style chair. The marble foundation features stars inlaid on a Greek fret band, and the statue’s eastern facade spells out “Lincoln” in bronze letters. Lincoln’s son, Robert Todd Lincoln, attended the statue’s dedication, and Lincoln’s sister-in-law, Mrs. Ben Hardin Helm, unveiled the statue.
