Joan of Arc on a Horse Statue was sculptured by Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington (March 10, 1876 – October 4, 1973) an American sculptor. She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Hyatt_…
The statue is in front of the Legion Memorial Building — that looks remarkably like the story's Masonic Lodge (the meeting place for the Esoteric Order of Dagon). The Legion Building, built in 1844–45, served as the Gloucester Town Hall until 1867 when it became the Forbes School. Saving it from demolition, the American Legion took over the building in 1919.
The memorial was dedicated to the community of Gloucester on August 5, 2001.

Scituate is a small seacoast town in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod Bay midway between Boston and Plymouth.
Scituate was settled by a group of people from Plymouth about 1627, who were joined by immigrants from the County of Kent in England. They were initially governed by the General Court at Plymouth, but in 1636 the town incorporated as a separate entity. The name Scituate is derived from "satuit," the Wampanoag term for cold brook. It refers to a brook that runs to the inner harbor of Scituate.

A statue of President Lincoln adorns the area adjacent to downtown Hingham Square.

Grace Church's magnificent stained glass windows have deep artistic, historic, personal, and spiritual significance. During daylight hours, nearly a century's worth of art (1846-1929) is dramatically displayed in more than 15 windows. Each window is a unique memorial, with its own story to tell. Viewed collectively, the windows form a lasting legacy of the people who were an integral part of Grace Church's earliest years.
