The Crawford County Historical Society Museum at 308 North Smith St. displays several object related to the Osage Trail Monument north of town. These include the clay model that was used as inspiration for the monument, and a taxidermied grey wolf in the same position as the one on the monument.

Went to the visitor center on June 21, 2018. All statues are up and just the waterfall and landscaping around it need to be finished. The staff at the visitors center were very nice and helpful. Watch not to get hotel signs in background in pictures.

The elder daughter of the Osage family has appeared, along with a wolf pulling the sledge. Eventually there will be a father, mother, and baby added. Expectations are that the finished monument will be 35 feet tall.

Osage Trail Legacy Monument

A steel sculpture at the Cuba Visitors Center celebrates the history and legacy of the Osage Nation. It is the only known monument to the Osage Nation in the state of Missouri.

The current sculpture, of a Missouri red wolf pulling a sledge, is just the smallest part of what is planned to be a 35-foot-tall statue group of an Osage family traveling west.
