The 9′ 8″  statue of an unnamed Quaker man was sculpted in 1883 by Herman Kirn and is a tribute to religious and political tolerance. It was gifted to Philadelphia by John Welsh, a noted citizen of the city and one of Fairmount Park’s former commissioners. It stands about 40 feet above the creekbed and path on a a bluff along the Wissahickon Creek in Fairmount Park, gazing westward.
