US Capitol - National Statuary Hall 2

The mission of the Ohio Statuary Hall Commission is to create and install the Thomas Edison statue in National Statuary Hall and to respectfully bring the Governor Allen statue home.  Through its new representative to the U.S. Capitol, Ohio seeks to bring the history of Ohio’s ingenuity to the forefront and celebrate the state’s unique entrepreneurial spirit.

Although Ohio, and the Ohio Statuary Hall Commission are spearheading the effort to recognize a native son, Thomas Edison’s legacy of innovation is universal.

To fulfill the mission of the Ohio Statuary Hall Commission, we rely on private donations.
