This is the statue in front of the Woburn Library that Chip has referred to. I snapped this when I was in Woburn in 2016. Count Rumford is my 4th cousin. He grew up with an ancestral uncle, Loammi Baldwin. I have toured Count Rumford's home several times. The original statue is in a large family park in Munich, Germany to recognize the work he had done in that country. When Woburnites heard of this, they arranged to have a replica made and placed in it front of the library. Enjoy! (Baldwin-3428)

I wanted to share this family photo of Benjamin Thompson with the community. Location: Woburn Library, Woburn, Middlesex, MA. Date: Jun 2016.
