Mini Statue of Liberty

Stands on a star-shaped base outside the Barton County Courthouse. This appears to be a "Strengthen the Arm of Liberty" Boy Scouts statue, but there's no mention of the Scouts on the statue plaque.

[Gan Nunnally, 07/21/2020]

The plaque credits "the school children of Barton County" for the 1950 mini-Liberty.
