This lady stands atop a 4 foot concrete pedestal within a 5 pointed concrete star base.  Her base is positioned on the south east corner of the county court house grounds in a prominent manor.  Both the statue itself and its base were in need of attention when we visited her.  Google Earth imagery suggests however that at least the base has been cleaned of the stains it has in our images below.  She had a beautiful patina that has hopefully been preserved.

Like always, we appreciate any information that you might have on her history.  If you can provide images and/or stories about her please use our online form to submit your information.  We appreciate all the assistance and up to date info we can get!
