Charles Linn statue
The 8-foot-tall statue was commissioned by the Alabama-Mississippi Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in honor of their "Legacy of Leadership" campaign chairman, Arthur Henley, a descendant of Linn.
The statue's appearance was based on an oil portrait hanging in the Linn-Henley Research Library, though the final sculpture includes the addition of a full beard. The banker and industrialist stands looking straight ahead with his hand resting on a short column with relief panels illustrating episodes from his life and career. The column itself is meant to symbolize his role in banking. The inset anchor symbolizes his time as a sea captain. An iron crucible and coal car represent his industrial activities. and a tree recognizes his role in creating a city park.May 28, 2013.
