The Francis Scott Key Monument is an outdoor sculpture to Francis Scott Key in Baltimore, Maryland.


Charles Marburg gave $25,000 to his brother Theodore Marburg to hire a sculptor to create a monument to Francis Scott Key. The French sculptor Marius Jean Antonin Mercié was selected. Mercie had previously created a bronze equestrian statue of Robert E. Lee in 1890 in Richmond, Virginia.

The sculpture was restored and rededicated on September 11, 1999. ||| Public domain ||| Creative Commons Zero, Public Domain Dedication
