Gideon Hixon

Artist: Elmer Peterson
Location: Badger Street, near the intersection of 7th Street

This is a cast bronze sculpture, standing just over 6′ tall.  Gideon Hixon was a leading citizen of La Crosse, lumberman, financier, and Senator for the 31st District of Wisconsin.  He lent money to individuals whose businesses might have been speculative, but if successful would lead to the growth of the city.

Created by Elmer Peterson, one of the most prolific sculptures to be found in the La Crosse area.  Many of Mr. Peterson’s works can be found throughout the city.
