The memorial is dedicated to the first manufacturer in Skanderborg, Andreas Blom.
The memorial is raised by his friends at the 29 of July 1917 in acknowledgement of the great effort he made for the town and its neighbourhood. He came to Skanderborg as a young locksmith and built up an enterprise producing agricultural machines which employed most of the inhabitants of the town.
The memorial is made out of granite with his portrait made of bronce.
Beneath is a full illustration of him as a young journeyman.
