Long Description:
This is one of nearly 200 small replicas of Bartholdi's Statue of Liberty placed around the country as part of the Boy Scouts of America's 40th anniversary (1950). According to a March 1986 Fact Sheet from the Boy Scouts of America, the idea for the project originated with Jack Whitaker, then Scout Commissioner of the Kansas City Area Council. The copper statues were manufactured by Friedley-Voshardt Co. (Chicago, IL) and purchased through the Kansas City Boy Scouts office.

The statue was presented to the city by the Boy Scouts, who acquired it for $300 or $375. The sculpture was unveiled and dedicated in 1951; rededication in 1986 coincided with the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the original Statue of Liberty which stands on Liberty Island in New York
