(Baseball Player) , 1927

by Unknown

 

Mediums: Granite

Location: Mid-Town; Elmwood Park 68th and Leavenworth 100 yards North of the Grotto and 100 yards to the East of the Pavilion in the Park

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: This baseball player, dubbed Bosco by some who didn’t appreciate his lack of style and grace, was atop a pedestal in Elmwood Park. Bocso was bronze and with the base, cost the Omaha Amateur Baseball Association $3500.00 in 1927. Made in a Chicago foundry, Bosco was dedicated in a ceremony in which a little girl doused him with a bottle of Elmwood spring water. The site for Bosco is adjacent to the Grotto (which had spring water) in Elmwood Park. Bosco remained on site until 1942 when he was dumped on a scrap-metal pile at 11th & Jackson streets during a collection campaign for “scrap metal for the war” (started by the Omaha World-Herald). A group of Central High School students freed Bosco with crowbars and wrenches and delivered him by truck to the collection site. There has been discussion over the years about replacing Bosco atop the remaining pedestal.

World War I Veteran Memorial , 1937

by Unknown

 

Mediums: Marble

Location: Mid-Town; Turner Park, at the corner of Farnam Street and Turner Boulevard

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: Omaha largest remaining World War I memorial honors the memory of those who served in World’s War 1917-1918. The memorial was financed by the Omaha chapter of the America War Mothers. It was built by the federal Works Projects Administration (WPA) during President Franklin Roosevelt’s administration. The mothers began planning the memorial in the 1920’s but didn’t raise all the money until 1937. According to historian Howard Hamilton, the stars at the arch of the structure were painted blue for Living Veterans, silver for the Disabled, and gold for the Deceased. The memorial was dedicated November 1937. The Mothers also planted 12 elms in the park. Friends of the Parks (under direction of architect Gary Bowen, BVH) organized restoration of the memorial in 1994 and rededicated the site November 1 that year. The landscape surrounding the memorial was redesigned in 2009 as part of the Mutual of Omaha Midtown Crossing development.
