Description
This monument is designed to commemorate the Hudson-Fulton celebration of 1909 – New York State’s combined 300th anniversary celebration of explorer Henry Hudson’s journey up the Hudson River and the 100th birthday of inventor and engineer Robert Fulton’s trip on the same river in his steamboat Clermont. The setting for the monument of the Greek goddess Hebe -- some apparently would say instead the Roman goddess Diana -- is an island-like, park setting. While the monument’s artist is now unknown, its maker was J. L. Mott Iron Works, at Beekman and Cliff Sts, New York City. Dedicated June 19, 1911, the work was treated by Tallix, Inc., Beacon, New York, in 2000. Its original installation was at Bank Square; between 1927-1931 it was removed to storage; and then, in 1931, brought forth into the current location. Sponsored originally by the town’s citizens, led by the Reverend Thomas Elliot, the Greek goddess required the leverage of mere mortals once more, in the form of the West End Men's Community Club, in 1931, to drag her out of the darkness of storage and into the light of her current setting.

Comments and Notes
NAME: Hebe vs. Diana. The SIRIS database entry notes unobtrusively that the statue has been identified differently at different times. According to Wikipedia, Hebe in Greek mythology is the daughter of Zeus and Hera; she is also the goddess of youth. Diana is the Roman goddess of the hunt and also of the moon; she was an emblem of chastity.
TITLE ALTERNATE: Diana
