Statue of Henry Rosenberg
23rd Street and SealyGalveston, TX 77550
The Statue of Henry Rosenberg is located in front of the original entrance to the Rosenberg Library. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas commissioned Louis Amateis to produce a bronze life-size sculpture of the Swiss born banker and philanthropist. It was dedicated in 1906.
Henry Rosenberg was an immigrant from Switzerland who settled in Galveston in 1843. He became a successful businessman first in a dry-goods store. He then became involved in other business interests including banking, real estate and transportation. He became a philanthropist later in life giving to many projects in Galveston. The full extent of his philanthropy was not known until his death and in his will he bequeathed to many more projects around Galveston including the library where this statue is located.
