Statement of Interest

The sculpture was erected to commemorate the man responsible for the creation of the public park. The millionaire, who was himself born in Dunfermline, purchased Pittencrieff House and grounds in 1902 and opened the park to the public the following year. The park is included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes. The statue was paid for by public subscription and erected while Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) was still alive. See separate list descriptions for park buildings.
