1. Lincoln Goodale Marker
Inscription. This bronze bust was created in 1888 by Ohio scupltor J. Q. A. Ward in memory of Dr. Lincoln Goodale, the area's first physician.

Dr. Goodale was also a successful businessman whose wealth and generosity allowed him to provide free medical care for the poor. In addition, Dr. Goodale was a founder of Capital University and Trinity Episcopal Church.

On July 14, 1851, he donated this beautiful 40-acre tract of land to the City of Columbus to be “forever kept and preserved as a public park,” thus making Goodale Park the oldest in the city.

This plaque was donated by the Victorian Village Society on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of Goodale Park, July 14, 1991.
 
Erected 1991 by Victorian Village Society.
