Sheridan landmark needs help from public

Posted:

The future of one of the most recognizable landmarks in a KOTA Territory city is up in the air.

The Lion-Dog statues adorning the entrance to Sheridan's Kendrick Park have lasted nearly a century without any maintenance work.

Cold winters have ruined the finish, while also leading to many cracks.  Vandals have also caused additional damage over the years.

The city is thinking about moving the statues to a new location indoors, but wants to hear from the public first.

"We're asking the city's citizens if they have any ideas on where they might be put on display that would protect them permanently from any more damage," said Fachon Wilson, the former head of the Sheridan Public Arts Committee.

Wilson says anyone with ideas on where to move the landmark should contact the city council or parks and recreation.
