Outdoor Sculptures - Wichita, KS - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

Art comes in so many forms. While many people keep art in their homes for their own enjoyment, there's also art displayed publicly for the enjoyment of all. Outdoor sculptures fall into this category of public art, and Wichita is home to some lovely ones. Here are some sculptures our real estate agents think you'll enjoy.

  • Keeper of the Plains: 650 N. Seneca St., Wichita, KS 67203
    Keeper of the Plains is a magnificent steel statue built where the Big and Little Arkansas rivers intersect. It was created in 1974 by Blackbear Bosin, a Native American artist, in honor of the surrounding land's sacred significance to the Native people.

    Stretching more than 44 feet into the sky, this statue is truly a sight to behold. If you visit at 9 pm in the spring or summer or at 7 pm in the fall or winter, the accompanying Ring of Fire will be lit, casting a gorgeous light on the statue.

Historical Destinations Around Wichita - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

The Wichita area has a rich history that includes cattle drives, Native Americans, and aviation manufacturing. If you'd like to learn about some of the area's history, you'll find several museums and other stops, including an old-fashioned sandwich and soda shop, that are well worth a visit.
  
Our real estate agents suggest stepping into the past at these Wichita destinations.  

  1. Old Mill Tasty Shop – 604 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS 67202  
    Although it may not seem like a traditional historic destination, the Old Mill Tasty Shop has been serving hungry and thirsty customers since 1932. The atmosphere is friendly, and some customers make the Tasty Shop a daily habit. Take a break and order a soda that's still made the old-fashioned way, or try a malt, shake, or float. If you'd like to make a meal of it, order the daily blue-plate special, or choose a sandwich like peanut butter, banana, and honey.
