Cerro Gordo County - Clear Lake
This is a very impressive Lincoln statue in the Clear Lake cemetery. It is 22 feet high with a polished red granite base. It was dedicated to "The Defenders of the Union" on Memorial Day, 1918. It was rededicated by the SUVCW in 2003. There is also another Civil War monument back of the Linclon statue. These are located on the east side of town near I-35. The cemetery is on 7th Avenue N just south of Highway 18 (the main road from I-35 into town.) The statue is in the NW part of the cemetery. Photos taken 3/14/08.
