This bronze statue of Ephraim McDowell can be found in historic Statuary Hall in the United States Capital. Dr. McDowell was chosen, along with Henry Clay, to represent Kentucky by a commission of Kentuckians who consulted school children and teachers across the state to decide who should receive this prestigious honor.

They were chosen for the “purpose of perpetuating to posterity the glorious history of Kentucky and the important part which she has played from the early settlement of this country until now.”, as expressed by Kentucky Representative Kencheloe during the dedication of the statues on March 3, 1929.

The statues were donated by Isaac W. Bernheim and created by the well-known sculptor, Charles H. Niehaus.
