40-Foot-Tall Re-Bar Statue Of Liberty

I looked all over [for this Research Target] but couldn't find the statue. The streets are not lettered anymore -- they have names. There was what looked like it could be parts of the statue abandoned in a field. However, the town of Walnut Grove is worth a visit. On the banks of the Sacramento River, charming historic buildings, a really cool draw bridge, etc.
