Sit with Giant Lincoln

Quick and easy photo op. Abe sits directly across the parking lot near the rose garden, and next to the Black History museum.

Very close to the blue field at Boise State University. My son and I enjoyed this huge statue. Even saw a covey of quail at this attraction.

Sit with Giant Lincoln

How great is it to sit on the bench with Abe. You can't appreciate the size until you stand beside him. On a beautiful sunny day he was hot hot hot -- careful if you lean on him.

Abe Lincoln Statue and Black History Museum

The large Abraham Lincoln statue by sculptor Gutzon Borglum in Julia Davis Park is well worth a side trip. The statue is adjacent to the Idaho Black History Museum, which is open Saturday and Sunday. Julia Davis Park is so beautiful with its rose garden and lake. The state capitol is down the street from this beautiful park.

[Jackie Solomon, 08/28/2013]

The statue, unveiled in 2010, is a giant-size copy of a life-size seated Lincoln that was sculpted in 1911 by Borglum, and still sits in Newark, New Jersey.
