The Heald Square Monument is a bronze sculpture group by Lorado Taft in Heald Square, Chicago, Illinois. It depicts General George Washington, and the two principal financers of the American Revolution, Robert Morris and Haym Salomon. Following Taft's 1936 death, the sculpture was completed by his associates Leonard Crunelle, Nellie Walker and Fred Torrey.
Heald Square is located in the Michigan–Wacker Historic District of Chicago's Loop community area. The square was named for Captain Nathan Heald, commander of Fort Dearborn from 1810-1812.
The sculpture was designated a Chicago Landmark on September 15, 1971.

  • This statue is General George Washington, and the two principal financers of the American Revolution, Robert Morris and Haym Salomon. Around the back is a beautiful carving of the statue of liberty.....  more »
  • The Heald Square monument is easily missed tucked away between the Irv Kupcinet & Bataan bridges, showing George Washington and two colleagues, well worth locating.  more »

  • Best spot for Summer walk in downtown. Enjoy the breeze , skyscrapers and lively city vibes
  • We stumbled onto this interesting monument the other day. On the back is an amazing depiction of Lady Liberty and the huddled masses. Quite inspiring and makes you proud to be an American.
