Little Sister of Liberty Back Where She Belongs
NORFOLK - For the last seven months, motorists driving along Pasewalk Avenue between Norfolk Junior High and Central Park may have felt there was something missing. There was. Boy Scouts had placed the Little Sister of Liberty statue on the northern edge of Central Park back in 1950. Then last November, workers removed her so she could be restored. Tom Bressler, who led the $12,000 restoration project and says more than 60 years of time and the elements had taken their toll. The Omaha firm Jensen Conservation did the restoration work. Bressler says all of the money to pay for it came from private funds. Today, the Little Sister of Liberty stands proudly between the World War I and World War II memorials, just in time for Memorial Day.
