    Description:

    The Wagonmaster is a  larger-than-life size figure of a man attired in western clothing. He is sitting on a horse with a gun placed across the saddle. The man is pointing in a westerly direction. The sculpture sits on a very large limestone rock. There is a crack in the right rear hoof of the horse.  The artist used his own face as a model. At the base of the statue are button activated recordings that tell the story of the Wagon Master and the Battle of Westport.
