Concord Museum is closed and will reopen this spring! Be sure to check our calendar for Concord Museum Forums and other virtual programs. Please also enjoy our new award winning 'Shot Heard Round the World' virtual exhibition.
Daniel Chester French (1850-1931) is best known for his monuments of two icons of American history: the Minute Man in Concord, MA (1871-75) and the seated figure of Abraham Lincoln for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC (1911-22). French completed over one hundred memorials and monuments during his productive career in Concord and later in New York City and Stockbridge, Massachusetts. This exhibition included some rarely displayed objects from French’s Chesterwood studio highlighting the role that Concord played in French’s life and career.
