Do like the Mount Carroll library is hoping to do. They discovered a desk top bronze statue that has been gathering dust since 1905 might bring from $100,000 to $150,000 at auction. They had it authenticated, cleaned and the auction will be live on-line. 9:37AM. on Nov. 28th.
The statue is "Nathan Hale" by Fredrick MacMonnies, cast in Paris, France.
The local newspaper article said some old Carnegie Librarys don't get some funding because they are not handicapped accessable and then close. (the ramp will probably take up more land than the building )
Something about this whole deal feels wrong, somehow?
Maybe the statue should stay home, where maybe it was intended to be?
It very well could have come from Carnegie with the building itself?
