Description

“The Captains’ Return” has back. The bronze statues of Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and their faithful companion dog Heyman were removed from near Eads Bridge for restoration. The 23-foot-tall, 9,000-pound bronze was installed on the south side of the bridge in 2006. A lot of times, the high water will leave the statue submerged, leading to erosion and damage. “The Captains’ Returns” captures historical figures Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and their Newfoundland dog, Heyman, in bronze. This is to mark the 200th anniversary of their return.

After the first installation in 2006, Mississippi River flooding often led to the sight of partially submerged statues, and Clark waved his hat in distress. In 2014, the statue was removed and restored to repair damage caused by flooding. In 2016, the statue was returned to the riverfront, slightly to the south, about 17 feet higher than before. Sculptor Harry Webb’s work is a familiar sight to St. Louisans. There are 31 works in the city, including the Dred and Harry Scott statues at the Old Courthouse, Champions Plaza at Busch Stadium, and Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park across the Mississippi River.
