Ho-Chunk Lacrosse Players Statue

Field review by the editors.

La Crosse, Wisconsin

On the north entry into the river city of La Crosse, the welcome sign is topped with a fiberglass sculpture depicting three Ho-Chunk Indians playing a lively game of Lacrosse. Two players reach with outstretched tree-branch racquets for the ball, while a third athlete lies at their feet.

Artist Elmer Petersen created the original statue in Cor-Ten steel, and it was erected downtown on Main St in 1980. It was eventually replaced with a bronze casting.

Now there's two of these outwardly identical Lacrosse player statues in town, so visitors should notice one or the other. That is, unless they are single-mindedly heading to La Crosse's World's Largest Six-Pack.
