A 14.6 meter sculpture by Lorado Taft located in Lowden State Park. Dedicated in 1911, the statue is perched over the Rock River overlooking the city.

The statue, according to the artist, represents the unconquerable spirit of Native Americans, using motifs from several tribal cultures. The sculpture was in part inspired by the life of Black Hawk (1767–1838), a leader and warrior of the Sauk.

The statue was created by sculptor Lorado Taft, beginning in 1908. On November 5, 2009, the Black Hawk Statue was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places
