Just statues, and some historical plaques sitting on the harbor area of DTA. Neat to learn about it all but I would go out of my way to search for this.

This is a fun piece of art right in the historic harbor area. A great little square to relax in and watch the ducks, people and boats. easy to find.

A nice memorial, showing Mr. Haley telling the story of his family to children sitting around him. A good way to show this part of the history of America for years to come...long after the TV series...
