Sculpture Garden
“Measuring 126 feet 10 inches (38.66 m) in length, the sculpture was inspired by Henry Austin Dobson's poem, "Paradox of Time.” With its 100 figures passing before Father Time, the work was created as a monument to the first 100 years of peace between the United States and Great Britain, resulting from the Treaty of Ghent in 1814.”
