Milwaukie, Oregon: Statue of Liberty ReplicaOne-sixth life size, which is big -- over 50 feet tall atop its base.
- 4255 SE Roethe Rd, Milwaukie, OR
- Right off of McLoughlin Blvd, in a parking lot almost behind a strip mall on the corner of Roethe Rd and McLoghlin Blvd. The strip mall 17185 is gray and has Rent-n-Roll and Army Recruiters. You can really only see her arm from the road, and only if you are really looking.
Visitor Tips and News About Statue of Liberty Replica
The business owner of the strip mall, where the Statue of Liberty is located, is of Middle Eastern descent. He purchased this statue to show everyone how much he loves America.
Unfortunately, when it was delivered, he broke one of the spires off of her head and then accidentally set her on fire while trying to put her in position. The fire was quickly put out, the spire was reattached, and the 31-ft. beauty was placed on her perch high above "Rent-n-Roll." With her stand, she is about 50+ feet tall.
There is a small moat of water surrounding her, so I guess she still is on an island. There is also a large eagle in front of her, with a plague proclaiming, "Liberty, Freedom for all nations. Freedom for all people. Let freedom Ring!"
Right across the street is a Dolphin Statue at "The Dolphin" nudie bar. What do naked women and dolphins have in common? I have no idea![Jody Day, 03/26/2007]
