Eagle Point Park is a heavily wooded recreational area just north of Clinton.  Within the park are several basket ball courts and other sport facilities.  There is also a paved bike/walking trail leading to the river bluffs that form the north east boundary of the park.  The trail will take you right by the Clinton Liberty Sister which is located just off the basket ball courts.  She stands atop a brick and concrete pedestal and sports a gleaming refurbished finish.  She is in generally good condition.  That said, all of her crown points are missing in the gallery images below which were taken at our last visit.  Perhaps these things have been addressed since we were there?

We are always interested in hearing your stories and seeing your historical pictures of the sisters.  If you have a story to share or some images related to our Lady Liberty Sister please use our online form to submit your data.  We appreciate your assistance in keeping this site as complete and up to date as possible.
