Lorimer Statue Gets Some TLC

NEWS

 

The weather can be rough, especially if you’re made of wood. The Louis Lorimer statue in Cape Rock Park, which was carved from a tree stump by August W. Birk in 1997 to commemorate Cape Girardeau’s founder, has been removed  for repairs. 18 years of unpredictable Missouri weather has left the statue worn and damaged. After it dries workers will patch it with foam and putty before sealing it. The drying process can take some time, and repairs might not be complete for most of the summer. Because of this officials are considering moving the Lorimer statue to an indoor location, either in the Cape River Heritage Museum or The Red House Interpretive Center, this will keep it safe from the weather and allow everyone to enjoy it for years to come, however no plans have been finalized.
