Want to see the Statue of Liberty? Head to Lawrence Co.



Published: Wed, July 4, 2007 @ 6:30 p.m.

NEW CASTLE, Pa. — At one time, you didn’t have to travel far to see replicas of the Statue of Liberty.

A slew of them — just over 200 in all — were placed in communities across the country by the Boy Scouts of America from the late 1940s to the early 1950s.

But age, weather and vandalism took their toll, and fewer than 100 still exist. Included in that number are two are in Lawrence County.

“We are very proud to have one of only 100 left in the United States,” said New Castle Mayor Wayne Alexander. The New Castle one is located in Fox Park off Grove Street.

The other replica stands outside Lincoln High School in Ellwood City. The little sisters of liberty each stand about 8 1/2 feet tall without a base.
