IWalked Boston’s Commonwealth Ave – Alexander Hamilton  Statue
One of the oldest statues erected along Commonwealth Avenue (located between  Arlington Street and Berkeley Street) is the one dedicated to Alexander  Hamilton. This statue is also known for being the only stone structure on the  Commonwealth Avenue Mall. It was sculpted by William Rimmer in 1865 and is made  of New England granite. Atop the base we see Hamilton in a rather stoic pose  with a fabric of some sort wrapped around his waist and left shoulder.
Hamilton, of course, is best known as our first Secretary of the Treasury and  for his infamous death at the hands of Vice President Aaron Burr due to a  gentlemen’s dual in which Burr was the obvious victor.
