Greene County - Jefferson
This is an 8 foot bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln on the Courthouse Square in Jefferson. The sculpture is by W. Granville Hastings who also did the Lincoln sculpture in Sioux City. There is also an excellent memorial for Captain Darrell Lindsey, a bomber pilot in World War II who was awarded a Medal of Honor. He died in France on August 9, 1944. The Greene County Courthouse is nicely restored with a wonderful atrium. Inside the south entrance is a veterans memorial with a listing of veterans from the county including Civil War soldiers. Photo taken 10/31/07. An old undated copy of a postcard showing the statue with a different base is also included - thanks to Danny Krock for providing the postcard.
