Waiting for a Home

This image shows the original statue stored in a shed at Gordon Park awaiting its next home. Many organizations declined to take the statue and here it sat until it was given to Perrysburg, OH. Another bronze replica was made for Perrysburg as the original marble statue continued to deteriorate. It is currently on loan to the National Park Service's Visitor's Center at Perry's Victory Memorial near Put-In-Bay.
