The Statue of Liberty Replica Monument is an outdoor replica of the Statue of Liberty, installed on the Texas State Capitol grounds in Austin, Texas, United States. The bronze replica was cast by the Friedley-Voshardt Company and erected by the Boy Scouts of America in 1951. It stands on a Texas limestone base and was originally installed southwest of the Capitol, along with a time capsule. The capsule was buried at the scout camp near Bastrop in 2008, and is scheduled to be re-opened in 2076.[1]
