American Statesmanship Park, affectionately referred to as “Mount Rush Hour,” features 18ft, two-ton busts of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Stephen F. Austin, and Sam Houston. Created and donated to Harris County in November 2012 by sculptor David Adickes, these statues are “A Tribute to American Statesmanship."
