A statue of Harriet Tubman in Columbus Square, South End, Boston, Massachusetts, at Pembroke St. and Columbus Ave. This was the first statue in Boston on city property that honored a woman.  The bronze statue stands 10 feet tall. The sculptor, Fern Cunningham, is from Boston. Tubman holds a Bible under her arm.  Tubman never lived in Boston, though she knew residents of the city.  The Harriet Tubman settlement house, now relocated, is part of South End, and was initially focused on services of black women who were refugees from the South after the Civil War.
