Meredith Willson Monument
Just outside and to the east of The Music Man Square complex, Meredith Willson greets visitors as they stroll up the walkway. The life size bronze statue stands ready to strike up the River City Band. Meredith's musical score can be seen everywhere in the architecture as we recall the endearing songs of the famous musical.
"That's My Meredith!" - Rosemary Willson was pleased, along with many other community members, with the likeness in bronze of her late husband created by Sculptor, Paul Rieffer.
The day of 'Unveiling' was graced with the presence of actress Shirley Jones, who portrayed Marian the Librarian, in the film verson of 'The Music Man'.
