Morning of Life

BACKGROUND: Clarence A. Shaler created this sculpture, some say his finest, in memory of his twin sister, Clara, who at age 18, died in the morning of her life. The bronze statue, a life size young girl seated on a large rock, eyes gazing heavenward, stands in the quiet of Union Cemetery in Mackford Prairie, twelve miles northwest of Waupun.
LOCATION: Highway 49W (Main St. Waupun) to County Trunk AW (just west of the city limits); 6 1/2 miles west to County Trunk Q; 3 miles north on Q to County Trunk X; 1/2 mile west on X to Union Cemetery.
