CCC Boy Bronze Statue

A 6-foot tall bronze statue of a CCC worker will stand sentry and bid welcome at the entrance to the CCC museum. Across the country 42 other statues have been put into place and soon it will be South Dakota's turn. The original statue, as well as a manufacture mold, were created at Elliot Ganz Foundry in New York. The first statue was placed in North Higgins State Park, Roscommon, MI on June 3, 1995.

Each statue has a unique base usually made from stone native to the area. In other respects the statues are identical.
