Spirit Lake has the distinction of being the community from which Jack Whitaker’s idea for the sisters was conceived.  The community had a “chicken wire and concrete” replica and it was during the dedication of this statue that the whole idea of the Liberty Sisters came to be.

This factor makes it particularly odd that we cannot locate particulars about the actual sister that is supposed to be here.   If anyone has the location, photos and/or stories relating to this sister please use our online form to submit your information.
