Whaleman Statue

Add to plan Remove from plan
The Whaleman, a gift of distinguished citizen William W. Crapo to the City of New Bedford, was unveiled Jun 20, 1913 on Library Square in the presence of thousands of spectators. This statue of the boat-steerer set up in granite and bronze was erected in remembrance of the energy and fortitude, the toil and enterprise of the men who laid the foundation of the prosperity of this community. It is a tribute to the men who faced dangers, who grappled with difficulties, and who achieved success. Let us hope that in keeping alive the story of the past it may serve to inspire those of the future with confidence and courage to meet the perplexities and duties which await them.
