Where to see larger-than-life Abe Lincoln statue here

The selfie possibilities are endless …

A giant-sized Abraham Lincoln sculpture is coming to Troy.

The statue is the highlight of this year’s Sculptures on the Square biannual art exhibit.

The sculpture, “Return Visit” by Seward Johnson is a 30-foot, 40,000 pound bronze sculpture featuring President Abraham Lincoln. It’s on loan from the Seward Johnson Atelier Inc. and brought to town by a Troy Foundation grant. This is the first time the sculpture will be on view outside its home turf.

Johnson’s life-size bronze sculptures of people in everyday life have been on display downtown in Troy in past years..


A “Remembering Lincoln” exhibit will be on view May 3-May 31 at the Troy-Hayer Cultural Center just west of the Courthouse and a Civil War Memorabilia display at the Miami Valley Veterans Museum in the Masonic Lodge building to the east of the county facilities.

A Lincoln Film Festival is coming beginning in June at the Mayflower Arts Center downtown and Main Street is holding a Penny Art Contest and Exhibit to feature work of students in grades six through 12.
