Long Description:
The plaque indicates it was given to the city on July 9, 1950 by the North Essex Council of the BSA in commeration of their 25th anniversary.

"Jack Whitaker, the Boy Scout Comissioner for the Kansas City Area Council, and a local businessman, started a program to celebrate Scouting?s 40th anniversary theme, "Strengthen the Arm of Liberty" by selling these statues. They are 8' 4" tall, made of copper, but appear more like a bronze casting. Braced from the inside, and usually set on a star shaped based, they appear much like the original in New York harbor. The arm is at a slightly different angle than the original, and there is usually a plaque in the base giving the Boy Scouts a mention. The statues were manufacured by Friedley-Voshardt Co. of Chicago, IL, and weigh about 300 lbs. Most of the statues were purchased through the Kansas City Boy Scouts for about $350."
