Statue of Edward Everett

 The statue was designed by William Wetmore Story of Salem in 1866. It was cast in Munich and set up in the Public Garden as a gift to the city from the citizens of Boston on November 18, 1867. The statue was moved from the Public Garden on June 24, 1910. In 1911 it was taken to Dorchester at the urging of the Dorchester Historical Society, and set up on Dorchester Day, June 6 of that year in the traffic circle at Edward Everett Square. Toppled by motorists, it was removed February 28, 1931, and stored in the woodyard in Franklin Park. It was later rescued and placed in Richardson Park next to Edward Everett Square.
