The towns leaders decided about setting up the statue in 1894. But the statue commitee started to collect donations only in 1898. After that they commissioned Ede Kallós, a local sculptor to create it. The impregnation (in 1903) took place where Kossuth spoke to the people of Vásárhely in 1848 during the revolution. (Ede Kallós (1886-1950) studied in Budapest, Paris and Italy. His most important works are: Ferenc Erkel (Gyula), György Bessenyei (Nyíregyháza), Lajos Kossuth (Makó, Nagykároly, Zsombolya). He and Ede Telcs (1872-1948) made the Vörösmarty monument in Budapest.
