Birmingham's Statue of Liberty
 
 
Statue of Liberty



 


Birmingham's Statue of Liberty is visible to motorists driving on the southern outskirts of Birmingham on the Interstate 459 bypass. Located in a commercial development, Liberty Park, the statue is lighted at night and her flame burns continuously.

A partial excerpt from a plaque at the site:

"A bronze replica, one-fifth the size of the Statue of Liberty, was commissioned by Frank Park Samford as the symbol for the company he founded, Liberty National Life Insurance Company. Created by sculptors Archer and Lee Lawrie, the statue was cast in Sommerville Haut Marine, France, in 1956 and was placed atop Liberty National's home office building in downtown Birmingham and then moved to its present location and dedicated on July 4, 1989."
