Aunt Laura On The Move

The soon to be 101 year old statue of Laura Haviland, also known as Aunt Laura, was moved yesterday from the front of the old City Hall under the guidance of Flatlanders Sculpture Supply and Gallery from Blissfield. Floyd's Rigging and Machinery Movers from Adrian conducted the move. Aunt Laura was moved in preparation for the demolishment of the old City Hall. She was moved to storage at our Parks and Forestry building to keep her from harm during the demo. Movement of a 15,000 pound statue is no easy feat but the crews from Flatlanders, Floyd's and city staff did a great job. It is expected that Aunt Laura will be returned to the site of the old City Hall at a future date.
