Dedicated on September 16, 1932, this bronze figure by Paul Manship stands downtown on Harrison Street. Called "Abraham Lincoln the Hooiser Youth," it depicts Lincoln as he may have looked while he lived in Indiana. He rests against an oak stump, with one hand on his axe and the other on his dog.

The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company commissioned Manship to produce this memorable statue in 1928. The American-born sculptor also did four relief sculptures for the pedestal to symbolize Lincoln's characteristics of charity, fortitude, justice, and patriotism.
