Statue of Liberty Replica, 1986, McRae

This local version of the Statue of Liberty was built by the Lions Club of found and recycled materials in 1986, as a tribute to the national symbol during its centennial year. It is a well-known landmark to travelers through McRae, and though not a perfect replica, is a great example of hometown ingenuity. It’s the centerpiece of a small park honoring Telfair County’s fallen soldiers, which also features a replica of the Liberty Bell.
