Puritan Statue

Located in Merrick Park, the Puritan Statue is a famous bronze statue of Deacon Samuel Chapin who was one of the founding fathers of the city. The statue shows a distinguished man in Puritan clothing, including a cape and a walking stick. The sculpture was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in the 1880s. The statue quickly became popular and the artist reproduced smaller versions of his work which are displayed in museums, art galleries, and other collections. Today, the Puritan Statue remains an important landmark in Springfield.
