Charles Lindberg Returns to the Historical Society Museum
Carter Granville sculpture, Charles Lindbergh, was moved from the Garden City Public Library back to its original owner, The Garden City Historical Society. The sculpture had been on long-term loan. Charles Lindbergh made the first solo non-stop flight across the Atlantic Ocean on May 20-21, 1927. He flew from Garden City to Paris in about 33 hours in a Ryan monoplane named the Spirit of St. Louis. Pictured, left to right, are Village Historians Bill Bellmer and Suzie Alvey, with Society Trustee Bill Garry.
