Freedom Crossing Monument ~ Lewiston, NY by 

This fine, larger-than-life bronze group by Youngstown, NY, sculptor Susan Geissler graces the waterfront above the Niagara at Lewiston, five miles south of where the river empties into Lake Ontario. It honors the conductors of the Underground Railway who delivered fugitive slaves to the safety of Canadian shores. A detail & more information can be seen here .
And note the large white house to the right, on the Canadian side. It is Glencairn .

A short bio, eh? I am Sheila, & I am short.

    Great shot Sheila, what amazing statues, I really like this open air artwork!

  • Many thanks, Shaun. The sculptor, Susan Geissler, is currently working on another project with a local theme involving the Tuscarora Indians. Have seen the models; the finished product should be glorious.
