Statue of Liberty – Overland Park

Statue of Liberty – Overland Park

This scale-size replica of the Statue of Liberty was presented by a nationally sponsored Boy Scout program which gave out 206 of these monuments to various cities across the country as part of the Boy Scouts of America’s 40th Anniversary (1950). The idea for the program originated with Jack Whitaker, then Scout Commissioner of the Kansas City Area Council. The copper statues were manufactured by Friedley-Voshardt Co. and purchased through the Kansas City Boy Scouts office.

This replica is on the grounds of Shawnee Mission North High School near the west parking lots. The statue faces east and stands atop a concrete base on top of a brick pedestal. The pedestal sits in a flower bed surrounded by a brick base in the shape of a five-pointed star.
