End of the Trail Sculpture
The End of the Trail sculpture was created as a tribute to the American Indian by James Earle Fraser (1876-1953) when he was only seventeen years old. His sculpture was twice the size of real life and gained world wide fame at the 1915 San Francisco Exposition. A Waupun industrialist, Clarence Shaler, commissioned the first bronze casting of the sculpture. Dedication of the casting was on June 23rd, 1929. The indian that modeled for the sculpture, Chief John Big Tree, was the honored guest at Waupun's 125th Jubilee celebration on July 1st thru 4th, 1964.
