The historic Miss Freedom statue in Atlanta is a prized state possession, and was first commissioned in 1888. This statue currently sits atop the dome of the Georgia State Capitol building, overlooking the city. Previous names for this statue include her original name of “Goddess of Liberty”, “Liberty”, and now her title of “Miss Freedom”.
By 2004, state officials decided that Miss Freedom was due for restoration work. The metal statue required repairs from the inside out, including the replacement of missing and damaged parts and repair of internal supports. Heather & Little was proud to be the top choice for her statue restoration and repairs.
