The Fens where these below Monuments are located
Dear Mr. Gallo,


            " Yours is a wonderful book!  I love how it is organized.  I plan to visit as many of these statues and memorials as I can with your book in hand! (I have often wondered about those personages in the Public Gardens.)  The history is absorbing; the photos are beautiful!  I love this book!"

                                                                            Many thanks,

                                                                                  Jan O'Hara

I bought it as a gift for someone else, but decided I wanted to keep it for myself. It's so interesting to look through and my goal is to go on hunts, looking for statues and sculptures all over the Boston area. I'm less than an hour away and can't wait to hunt down my favorites; my book is full of little post-it flags that I have to see in person. It's like a treasure hunt. What a great idea someone had to put this book together!

Love this book! I am not a history buff, but I do love art and sculpture. The pictures are gorgeous and I really appreciate how simplified this book is. There are cute little maps indicating where to find these beautiful Boston gems ... many I didn't know existed and I've lived in Boston for 20+ years! After I come out of hibernation this winter, I plan to take myself on a tour in the Spring to see some of these. This could be a fun little Christmas gift too.

What a delightful and informative tour of Boston!! The pictures are spectacular and the research is thorough and informative. Joe Gallo's love of Boston is apparent on every page. This book is a must for anyone who has been to Boston or is planning a trip there. The beauty and grandeur of New England's first city is breathtaking. Kudos to Joe Gallo for this labor of love!

This is a very nice book with lots of interesting facts, especially for locals!! It is nice to have some knowledge about the city sculptures we all walk by time after time, with no real awareness of their significance. Great gift, worth the $$$.

The author appeared on WCVB Chronicle program. Visited many of the sculptures starting with my grandmother as a guide in the 1950's I wanted to have the memories brought to life as we are leaving Massachusetts for Florida. This is a great work of art and education.

This Boston monument guide book can be purchased on Amazon.com and local boston Book Stores such as "I Am Books" North End.

Veterans ;America Thanks you For All Your Service.


Revolutionary War Monument by Charles Bulfinch

Beacon Hill Memorial Column

Outside Beacon Hill State House / Rear Charles Bulfinch, Sculptor Bronze / Granite


Clearly another first for Boston. This monument was the first in the country to honor our Revolutionary war heroes.


Created by Charles Bulfinch, architect of the State House, the Beacon Hill Memorial Column was originally erected in 1790, but removed in 1811. The memorial was recreated in 1990 and contains inscription plaques from the original monument. 


The Beacon Monument dedicated to the fallen of The American Revolution was blown down 1789, the same year Charles Bulfinch, who graduated Harvard 1781, was chosen one of the selectmen of the town of Boston who redesigned the Beacon Hill Column. 

"Boston Bronze and Stone Speak to Us"can be purchased at "The Old North Church Gift Store", "I Am  Books"Boston, MA and on Amazon .com
