On the town square at MO-20/E. Arrow St. and N. Jefferson St. The statue is on the southeast corner of the Saline Courthouse, near the building, behind one of many war memorials.

Chief Justice John Marshall

Dedicated during the U.S. Bicentennial, this statue is of the longest-tenured (1801-1835) and most revered Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. John Marshall was also the chief legal officer for General George Washington at Valley Forge.

[Gan Nunnally, 08/27/2020]

When Chief Justice Marshall is depicted in other sculptures he's often seated, deliberating in his court attire. This rendering, with its roughed-out clay appearance, is an unsettling High Court golem.
