George Washington

George Washington
An authorized cast bronze by The Gorham Foundry from the original by Jean Antoine Houden (17 41–18 28) which stands in the state capital at Richmond, Virginia. It was purchased by the George Washington University in 1932 on the occasion of the George Washington Bicentennial. After standing in a number of locations on the campus, the statue found its permanent home in the University Yard and was dedicated on the spot on September 6, 1991. “George Washington” is part of The George Washington University Permanent Collection.
