Sir Frederic Adam’s Statue

History

Sir Frederic Adam (1781-1853) was a Scottish-born British General who took part in the battle of Waterloo. He became the Ionian Islands’ Lord High Commissioner from 1824 to 1832. During his governorship, he was a good administrator, much appreciated by the local population because of his building several public landmarks, among which the Mon Repos summer residence, but mostly for the major project that brought running water to the town of Corfu from the Benitses sources. As a sign of gratitude his bronze statue by the local sculptor Prossalendis was positioned in front or the Palace of St Michael and St George, in the center of an elegant water-fountain surrounded by flower-beds.
