About this Exploration:
Although it is not the size of the real statue, visitors can see a Little Sister of Liberty in front of Memorial Library in Liberal. The 8 1/2 inch replicas were created by the Boy Scouts of America to celebrate their 40th anniversary theme of Strengthen the Arm of Liberty.
Between 1949 and 1950, approximately 200 replicas of the Statue of Liberty were made of stamped copper, purchased by Boy Scout Troops for $300 to $350 each and then donated in 39 states as well as U.S. possessions and terroritories.
Twenty-six of the little ladies resided in Kansas, possibly because the project was the brainchild of J.P. Whitaker, Scout Commissioner of the Kansas City Area Council.
