Abraham Seated Lincoln Statue
  • In Grant Park you can see a bronze Abraham Lincoln statue by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It was given to the city of Chicago by John Crerar, who left a $100,000 bequest in 1889 to construct a Lincoln statue. Saint-Gaudens took 12 years to complete the seated figure, but it was not unveiled until 1926, more than 20 years afterward. Architect Stanford White designed the semi-circular site.
