Chain Garden

The Chain Garden is named in honor of former Hattiesburg Mayor Bobby Chain and his wife Betty and is a memorial to their parents and Mr. Chain’s sister. In 2006, the garden was completely renovated by the Chain family and now includes a six foot bronze statue entitled “The Risen Christ.” Commissioned in Italy, the sculpted bronze features Biblical scripture surrounding the base, and a memorial plaque honoring the late president Dr. Larry Kennedy.
