Bust of C.X. Larrabee
Dedication was held October 18, 2008, with several of Larrabee’s decendants attending the ceremony.   Robert McDermott is the sculptor; his other works in Fairhaven include J.J. Donovan and Dirty Dan Harris.

The bust is located on 11th Street between Harris and McKenzie Avenues between the historic Nelson Block and  Rustic Coffee.  In this location, the tee-totalling Larrabee has a clear view of the former location of the 1890s Tontine Saloon which was part of "Devil's Row.    That location became the So. Bellingham Post Office and is now Skylarks Restaurant.
