Teddy Roosevelt Rides Again: Enchanted Highway

Field review by the editors.

Regent, North Dakota

Gary Greff welded scrap pipe from North Dakota wells into a 51-foot-tall silhouette outline of future U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. Dressed in his Rough Rider uniform, astride a rearing steed, Teddy waves to his many highway fans, silhouetted against the domelike prairie sky.

Erected in 1993, this was the second of Gary's Enchanted Highway sculptures, and the last one created with any significant help from the town. As if a titanic Chief Executive wasn't enough, Gary also built a full-size metal stagecoach and four-horse team and parked it in front.

Why Teddy Roosevelt? He spent several years as a young man roughing it in this part of North Dakota, and later credited it with helping to make him a vigorous President.
