Description
This monument pays tribute to the fire-fighting volunteers of Newburgh, New York. Also known as the Newburgh Volunteer Firemen’s Memorial, or Firemen’s Monument, its statue depicts a uniformed firefighter in action, holding a little girl under his arm, and its base pictures resources associated with the firefighter’s function. The work was developed at the time of and in association with the ceremonies 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. Sculptor D.C. Miller created and Tiffany and Company, New York, made this monument of bronze placed on a granite base. For its unveiling ceremony, September 30, 1909, the memorial was situated in the yard of the artist, at Broadway and Concord Street. Later, it was repositioned to a hillside in Downing Park, overlooking Dubois Street, and re-dedicated on May 30, 1910. Five years in development, the remembrance was championed by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Firemen’s Association.
