Installed in 1990, the bronze End of the Trail statue commemorating Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark 4,000-mile, 18-month journey was created by Stanley Wanlass. It stands at the Turnaround in Seaside, Oregon, where Broadway Street ends at the historic Seaside Promenade, a 1.5-mile stretch of paved walkway along the Pacific Ocean that was built in 1920.

The Turnaround is a fitting location for the statue, as it’s considered to be the official end point to the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s journey—the place where they “turned around” to return home.
