If you're an old timer like me, or even if you're of the younger set but watch old re-runs on television, you have seen the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Her show was a situation comedy based in Minneapolis. It was one of my favorites back in the 1970s.

Mary Tyler Moore, with bright smile, upbeat attitude and cheery disposition was truly one of America's sweethearts. She is honored and remembered fondly by the people of Minneapolis with this statue which stands on a downtown sidewalk, in front of the building where her fictional character (Mary Richards) worked.

A plaque beneath the statue reads: MARY TYLER MOORE: Who can turn the world on with her smile?

Don't leave Minneapolis without stopping by to pay your respects and have your photo taken here. There are other Mary Tyler Moore sites in Minneapolis and you may learn about them by clicking on the web link below.
