Lawrence Holofcener with the statue

Side view of statue Head on view of statue
Dedicated on June 7, 1997 by the Bordentown Historical Society. Sculpted by Lawrence Holofcener.
It sits on a grass median in a quiet residential section of town. The statue is not out of context. The entire town looks and feels like a colonial village.
If you walk to the end of the street directly behind the statue, you will see a bridge to your left. A plan is underway to rename the bridge in honor of another aspect of Thomas Paine's legacy. Paine is credited with devising the cantilevered bridge. It will be the first known dedication of a bridge in his name.
