Escanaba, MI -- Post 1
This past weekend my friend Renee and I worked my mineral art booth at the first show of the year. This was the TV6 art and craft show in Escanaba. On Sunday morning, the show didn't start until 11:00 am, so we drove around the area. At the south end of Bay de Noc we noticed these cement statues in a park. They were made from cement by E.H. Levely in Midland County. Later, Henry Ford tried to purchase them from W.C. Wickham, who had purchased the collection. Wickham refused the offer. Wickham's son later purchased the cement figures from his father's estate and later donated them to the community to be displayed along the Bay de Noc for everyone to enjoy.
