Sculpture in Laramie, Wyoming - Can You Find It? (#13)

Laramie, Wyoming. We have some culture, really - we do!  The challenge of this little just for fun series . . .

Can You Find It ?!

If you haven't been to - or live in - Laramie, Wyoming,  it won't be easy to do the  "Can You Find It?"  part of this challenge.  However,  I  hope  that  far  away  visitors  can  still  enjoy   the   pictures!   

                            Fountain Girl Bronze

 I call this one "Fountain Girl".  There is no documentation of its real name or artist, but when I find out I'll come back and add it.  I do know that plaques around the base identify this a monument to the women back in 1870 who first voted and served on a jury.  Though the sculpture itself is decidedly not pioneer like!

Brenda, It looks like you have found another interesting sculpture. I'll see if I can help find the name or artist. Where is it located and what do the plaques say?

Sounds great, I can always use a little help!  It is on the grounds of the Ivinson Memorial Mansion.  

Plaque One:  Laramie Women's Club organized in 1898 honors Laramie's fist ladies who pioneered civic and political responsibility by woman in this country and the world.  Louisa Swain made world history as the first woman to vote in a general election.  She cast her ballot eary in the morning of Septtember 6th, 1970 in Laramie, Wyoming.

Plaque Two says:  World wide attention focused on Laramie in March 1870 when the first women in history to serve on a jury dealt stern justice in cases of murder, horse-stealing and illegal branding.  They were Miss Eliza Stewart, Mrs. Amelia Hatcher, Mrs. G.F. Hilton, Mrs Amelia Hatcher, Mrs G.F. Hilton, Mrs. Mary Mackel, mrs. Agnes Baker, and Mrs. Sarah A Pease.

Plaque Three says: The first woman bailiff in the world, Mrs. Martin Symons-Boies was appointed to arrange accommodations for the first woman jurors fwhen the Grand Jury met in a building located at First and Garfield Streets in Laramie, March, 1970.

Plaque Four says:  Mary Godat Bellamy, the first woman elected to the Wyoming State legislature represented Albany County in 1911.  She worked effectively for laws benefitting woman and children and became a nationally known speaker for womean suffrage.

Perhaps there is more identifying signs under the snow but that's all there was to be seen on that day!

Brenda---This is a really beautiful sculpture---it looks almost silver.  I am imagining you out with your camera for a full day snapping all of these photos.  Pretty smart!!

Hi Brenda - Okay, why is that lovely lady running around in the snow without a heavy coat?  I know people up where you are are tough but that is taking it a bit far.  Grin  Great picture.  Thanks for the blog.

She cast the first ballot in 1970? I'm betting that is a typo, since I cast my first ballot in 1970.

This is a lovely, breath-taking sculpture. Your photos make me want to visit Laramie--not during the winter, though....
