Inscription.
Former President Taft was to return to Lytle Park on March 31, 1917 to preside at the unveiling of the statue “Lincoln - the Man,” a gift of the Charles P. Tafts. The statue, executed at a cost of $100,000 by Sculptor George Grey Barnard of New York, was at first shocking to Cincinnatians with its gaunt and weary features but later gained international fame. It was restored as a gift to the city by Mr. and Mrs. Eleftherios Karkadoulias and rededicated in 1972.
 
Erected by Park Board Volunteers, the Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati, and Public-Spirited Citizens.
