Sculpted by Georg Lober. Dedicated on July 4, 1950, the 174th Anniversary of American Independence. It was presented to the people of Morristown by the Thomas Paine Memorial Committee; Joseph Lewis, Secretary.

Well-maintained Paine
Here's a shot of the Paine statue when it was maintained on a regular basis (very similar to the Thetford and Paris statues.) As you can see, it looks nothing like this now. The Morristown statue is the largest, most comprehensive tribute to Paine (although not as physically accurate in its representation of Paine) and is only one of three statues to the 'Father of the Revolution' in the entire nation. Not even Washington, D.C. has one.
It sits in Burham Park, in full view of the passing traffic on Route 124.
