SEDAN, Kan. (AP) A 15-foot wide fiberglass eagle that perched for 21 years atop a rotating sign at The Wichita Eagles former building is getting a new home at a Boy Scouts of America camp.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the eagle was removed during a 1988 attempt to modernize the exterior of the building, which later was demolished. From there it went to Camp Tawakoni near Augusta where it honored the highest rank in Scouting The Eagle Scout.
But when the camp was sold in 2004, it wound up in storage at the Quivira Scout Ranch, where it was rediscovered this year when staff needed the shelf space it occupied.
