DescriptionWamesit Indian Monument, on Main Street, is a 7-foot-high cast bronze sculpture set on a 9-foot-high granite boulder. It was designed in honor of the peaceful Native American by Mico Kaufman, a Tewksbury resident and world-class sculptor.
Kaufman also created the Water, Anne Sullivan-Helen Keller Monument, on Main Street, depicting the turning point in Helen Keller's life. A young girl born deaf and blind feels water at the pump, and with three extended fingers understands sign language for the letter W and water. The monument is a tribute to her dedicated teacher Anne Sullivan, a longtime resident of Tewksbury.
