Lexington’s Madonna of the Trails Monument is currently undergoing some repairs. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with Monument State Chairman, with the Daughters of the American Revolution, LaVeda Cross:
Cross said the Madonna of the Trails memorializes the pioneer mothers of the 1800s. “The hardship is just hard to imagine,” said Cross, “These women and how brave they had to be.” The organization believes the hairline cracks in the monument and its base may be due to the hot, dry summer. The estimated cost of repairs is $5,000.
