If you visit Independence Hall and Mall there’s a small park in the rear. There’s a statue of commodore Barry and this Signer. Not much else. So you’re there so see it.

The Signer statue is located in a smal quiet park which is a short walk behind Independence Hall. Not much to see but the sculpture.

All the historical stops are nearby so you'll pass by this statue. Nothing mind-blowing, but history.

Walking towards Independence Hall, we came across this excellent statue representing one of the original ‘Signers” Of the Declaration and the Constitution. Stop and enjoy the sculpture, it is full of movement.

Sitting in a nice little park area in the shadows of Independence Hall, the Signer statue promotes the power of self government. The brave 56 signers were willing to give up there fortunes, and very possibly their lives for this cause.

Small open park with a bronze statue of the signer in the middle. My both of my kids thought he was holding a beer bottle instead of rolled up parchment paper.

The Signer statue was inspired by George Clymer, who signed important documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. It's co-located with the site of the Gilbert Stuart House (painter of Washington's image used on the one dollar bill), in Signer's Park...More

Philadelphia is full of nice little parks. This one is close to Independence Hall. Nice for sitting outside and enjoying the passers-by. The statue is little generic, but a good reminder where you are.
