Hastings Museum Places New Statue On Its Property

6-28-13 - hastings museum statue

 

Members of the Hastings Museum Foundation, staff and other onlookers came to the Museum on Burlington Avenue yesterday to install a new statue commemorating a pair of brothers who survived and Indian attack in the 1860s.

 

The 7 '1200 lb. statue was hoisted in the air by a crane and installed into its future home right outside the Museum entrance.

 

Hastings Museum Foundation President Rhonda Pauley was also on hand and she says when the project first came up...she first learned about the Martin Brothers and the story's impact on the local area.

 

President of Bosselman Energy Fred Bosselman is donating the statue and he says he felt it was important to keep that history alive.

 

The Martin Brothers Statue will be officially dedicated later in the summer.
