New Views VI - 2007
Burlington County Sculptures, Monuments and Memorials
Burlington County contains dozens of sculptures, monuments and memorials that commemorate people and events, celebrate heroism, and identify locations of historic interest. Some are simply adornments for properties or buildings that have gained significance because of their association with the history of the county.
After excluding the majority of community Veteran's Memorials and town clocks from the mix (simply because of their proliferation), and identifying 35 other significant historic sculptures and monuments, we have narrowed our selection to only a small number of them for this year's "New Views" Art and Tourism project. Shown below are the 23 selected objects for the art project. Artists are invited to add their interpretation to the basic, generally simple, designs.
Historical notes on each sculpture, monument or memorial and the location and directions to the site can be accessed by clicking on the name below the picture or on the name of the town on the list shown to the left. All monuments are listed by town.
