From The Valentine:

For this week’s #MonumentMonday, we’re looking at the Statue of Liberty in Chimborazo Park! Dedicated in February of 1951, this replica was purchased by what is now the Heart of Virginia Council, Boy Scouts of America and gifted to the city. It was one of 200 identical statues dedicated across the country as part of the Scouts’ “Strengthen the Arm of Liberty” fortieth anniversary theme. #RVA #RichmondStories
