Maryland's Madonna of the Trail Rescued from Sink Hole Precipice

An emergency move of Bethesda, Maryland's Madonna of the Trail occurred today, Friday, Dec. 10th, due to a sink hole that developed near the 17-ton statue. The road on which the statue is located, Wisconsin Avenue, is a major thoroughfare in and out of Washington, D.C., and is completely shut down at the sink hole. A recent water main break may be responsible for the damage.

The big pioneer gal and her frontier brood will be moved to the Montgomery County Public Safety Training Academy in Rockville for safe keeping. No word at this point on when it will return. Update - June 2007 - Julie Mangin from tackytreasures.com reports "The Madonna of the trail has been returned to its site."
