Our Next Historical Society Program
“The Indian Hunter”
At 10:00 AM on Sat. Oct. 27, J.Q.A. Ward’s sculpture “The Indian Hunter" will be rededicated at Oak Dale Cemetery, Urbana, and the public is invited. Earlier this year, CCHS members Marty and Lynn Reich noticed that the sculpture was showing signs of deterioration. They coordinated a campaign that resulted in the complete restoration of Ward’s piece by local artist Mike Major.
