It is indeed a really nice statue and its a really important interesting piece of history. This is located in one of the oldest parts of boston right next to the church where he lit the famous historic lanterns. This is a pretty popular spot for tourist to visit and take a pic. The park the statue is located in is really well taken care of and very clean and well kept. Plenty of shade to escape the summer heat and a few benches spread thru out to rest your legs. I always enjoy checking out statues when I visit different cities because they stand for great pieces of history.
