This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A self-taught stone carver memorialized by Baughman Memorial Park in rural Muskingum County, Ohio, Daniel Baughman created the sculpture park between the 1880s and the late 1920s.  He was a local undertaker, and from his hobby of stone carving he created portraits and other motifs on the area's rocky outcroppings, and eventually perfected his skills with free standing portraits of presidents and military figures.

"All of the carvings made by Baughman are located on the hillside property of his father's farm.  As the sculpture collection grew, the area became known as Baughman Park. During the 1920s through the 1940s, it was well known as a popular place to picnic.  In 1931, Ohio governor Vic Donahey officially dedicated the hillside property as Baughman Memorial Park. When the elderly Baughman moved to Dresden, the park property was sold and turned it into a camping ground. It was sold again and turned into a religious retreat for teenagers. And, by the time the property was sold again, it was showing signs of vandalism and neglect.  In 1997, the property was acquired by The Longaberger Company, which has fenced the property and added security. The Baughman Memorial Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places."

His doughboy figure sculpture, a soldier symbolic of World War I American heroism, was dedicated by the Zanesville American Legion.
