Located in Wright Square, the monument to William Washington Gordon (1796-1842) commemorates the founder and first president of Georgia's earliest railroad, the Central Railroad and Banking Company - an enterprise which greatly promoted the economy of Georgia. Designed by the distinguished architects, Henry Van Brunt and Frank M. Howe, the monument to Gordon symbolizes the progress and prosperity of the world by means of commerce, manufacture, agriculture and art. It was completed in 1883.
