Clark and Sacagawea Statue in Hysham, MT

 Life-size, painted statues of William Clark, Sacagawea, Jean-Baptiste, and a hunting member of the
Unique Statues in Hysham, Montana

It was the late summer of 1806 when William Clark and his party traveled down the Yellowstone River through today’s south-central Montana. The route follows very closely I-94 today.

Just off the Interstate, about 75 miles northwest of Billings, is the small town of Hysham, Montana, where you’ll find a unique tribute to Captain Clark, Sacagawea, Jean Baptiste, and an unidentified hunter of the Corps.

Local sculpture Bob Schulze created them from wood, along with a woolly mammoth, saber-tooth tiger, and white buffalo. The statues are located on the lawn adjacent to the Yucca Theater which was built in 1931 in the Spanish Mission style of architecture.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the theater is across the street from the Treasure County 89ers Museum which explains the history of the area.
