Virtual Vermonter - Robert Burns Statue

The Scottish immigrants that were drawn to Barre's granite industry were responsible for making possible the statue of Scottish poet Robert Burns that sits in front of what used to be Barre's Spaulding Graded School. Sculptor J. Massy Rhind originally started the statue to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Burn's death, although it wasn't actually unveiled until July 24, 1899 in front of a crowd of 10,000. The statue itself stands atop a giant Barre granite base that is covered with intricate bas-relief depicting Burn's poetry.
