The Dr. Joseph Warren Foundation is committed to the preservation & education of the Warren legacy. To that end, we support & encourage monuments & plaques dedicated in his memory. Although Warren was killed in action a year before the Declaration of Independence, he served his fellow colonists in a variety of roles--from physician & son of liberty to patriot spymaster & major general.
Bunker Hill 1846 (Sculptor: Henry Dextor)
The first statue of Dr. Joseph Warren was dedicated in 1857 & placed in a temporary location until the Bunker Hill Lodge was built in 1901 to house the statue. The lodge stands adjacent to the Bunker Hill Monument.
Roxbury 1904 (Sculptor: Paul Wayland Bartlett)
This bronze statue was placed in the center of Warren Square in Roxbury (Boston), MA in 1904. Decades later, the statue was removed & stored to accommodate road construction. The intention was to eventually return the statue to its original location, but the Warren bronze was misplaced & forgotten about. In 1969, a physician asked that the statue be moved to the Roxbury Latin School, (Dr. Warren's Alma Mater) where it has remained on campus prominently displayed.
Warren, PA (Sculptor: Richard Bock)
The General Joseph Warren statue was dedicated on July 4, 1910. The statue was commissioned by the Tidioute Chapter of the DAR. This Warren statue is displayed at the front of the General Joseph Warren Park in Warren, PA. (Named for Dr. Warren in 1795.) The statue was refurbished, to include a new sword. A rededication ceremony was held on May 9, 2011 by the General Joseph Warren Chapter of the DAR.
Forest Hills Cemetery 2016
This statue stands atop the Warren Family Tomb at Forest Hills Cemetery in Jamaica Plains (Boston) MA. This statue was modeled after the Bartlett statue in Roxbury & was dedicated by the Sixth Masonic District of Massachusetts Freemasons on October 22, 2016. The ceremony was attended by Dr. Warren’s fifth great-grandson, George C. Wildrick. who gave the keynote address. For more detail on this dedication, click here.

Currently, two separate projects are in development. In Warren County, Ohio efforts are underway to create a full-body, full-size bronze sculpture of Dr. Joseph Warren as a physician to dedicate & reveal on the June 17, 2025, 250th anniversary of Dr Warren’s death at Bunker Hill.
Our own Lanning Levine is spearheading efforts for a Warren statue in Washington, D.C. that will represent Warren as a patriot spymaster. We will continue to update all progress on these forthcoming projects. To get involved & see how you can help support our efforts please contact us.
