The Lincoln Monument was dedicated on September 16, 1870, originally installed at the southwest corner of Union Square (same place in this photo). The bronze statue was sculpted by Henry Kirke Brown (1814–1886). The stone and bronze rail fence around the Monument was constructed in 1875. In 1930, the Monument was relocated to the north end of Union Square Park.
