Find Out Where A Controversial Augusta Statue May Now Call Home
If you've been wondering what the latest is with the statue that is sitting in front of the Kennebec County Court House on State street, you may, or may not be happy to learn that the statue of Melville W. Fuller is going to be moved, perhaps right across the street!
If you recall there was a rash of public outcry for the statue due to the legacy of racial segregation that many have associated with U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, Melville W. Fuller. The county commissioner voted to have the statue removed last year but no one was certain on where it was going....until now.
Now, according to a report on centralmaine.com, the city of Augusta's planning bureau has some details of the Maine Judicial Heritage Society Memorial Museum across the street at the former site of the Augusta YMCA where the statue may be relocated.
Time will tell if this indeed will be the new site where the statue of former chief justice Fuller will live out its days.
