Welcome "E.W. Gollings" to the
Sheridan County Museum
 
 
 

The Sheridan County Museum is pleased to introduce "E. W. Gollings", a sculpture by Marylee M. Moreland. The eight-foot tall monument proudly stands in front of the Sheridan County Museum. The sculpture is based on a photograph (shown above) of Elling William “Bill” Gollings taken May 2, 1926, on Pass Creek just north of Sheridan County in Montana.

 

To raise funds for the monument, the Museum is selling limited edition maquette castings of it, as well as accepting additional donations. Each maquette sells for $4,000.00, plus applicable taxes and shipping, with $2,670.00 going towards the monument. The maquette measures 19" tall x 6.5" wide x 6" deep, not including the walnut base. The edition size of the maquettes is 35 castings. 

 
The initial goal for completion of the project was set for March 17, 2013—Gollings’ 135th birthday—but installation took place on November 16, 2012, with the unveiling and dedication on the 17th.
 
Although the monument has been installed at the Museum, we are still selling maquettes to fully fund the piece. To learn more about the project, to view or purchase a maquette, or to make a donation, please stop by, call, or e-mail the Museum.
