Statue - America's First Boy Scout Troop

My husband was a member of BSA Troop 750 in Maryland. This is a nice tribute to the beginning of the BSA organization. It's out in front of the historical museum.

America's First Boy Scout Troop

The Gateway to the Prairie, a small town named Pawhuska, boasts some unusual facts. They have a statue in front of the Osage Co. Museum dedicated to the first Boy Scout troop of America (not troop #1). Also it is the town that started the FBI hunt for Bonnie and Clyde.
