The Statue

Tucked away near the corner of Peachtree and 14th Street is a statue of the former visionary Southern Railway president, Samuel Spencer. The statue was commissioned by employees of the railroad as a memorial following Spencer’s ironic death due to a train accident. Though it is one of Atlanta’s most treasured works of public art, few know its full story.
