This statue was created to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the City of Eudora 1857-2007, Jim Brothers, sculptor.
In 1854, Paschal Fish received 1,200 acres in land allotments in this part of Douglas County (200 acres for himelf, 200 acres for his wife, Martha, and 200 acres for each of his children: Obediah, Eudora, Leander and Mary Ann). Paschal Fish and his brother, Charles, owned and operated a ferry which crossed the Kansas River just north of downtown Eudora. Paschal also owned and operated the Fish Hotel, the first floor used for dining and the second floor for sleeping quarters. Pashal was a Methodist minister and was instrumental in establishing the Wakarusa Indian Mission built in Eudora.
In 1868, Eudora Fish married Dallas Emmons. They lived in LaCygne, KS and had 4 children. Eudora passed away unexpectedly at the age of 29. She is buried in the Huron Indian Cemetary in downtown, Kansas City, KS.
