Hixon Memorial

Artist: Leonard Crunelle
Location: Oak Grove Cemetery, 1407 La Crosse Street

This art piece depicts a mother and her child resting upon a granite base.  The sculpture is made of bronze.  Inscripted in the base of the statue is, “Who had not learned in hours of faith, the truth to flesh and sense unknown that life is ever Lord of Death and love can never lose its own.”  An old oak tree stands as a protective canopy over the sculpture.

The cemetery in which the sculpture stands it itself a La Crosse Historic Site.
