City of Altus Buffalo returns

January 16, 2014

The City of Altus buffalo statue that stands in front of City Hall roamed for a few weeks, but has returned. It was mounted on top of a 5,000 pound granite rock out front of the Municipal Complex. The rock was donated by Willis Granite Monuments of Altus.

“We had to get an oversized loader to be able to unload it,” said Altus Parks and Cemetery Director, Freddy Perez. “Labor for the rock and mounting of the buffalo was all donated as a service to the City of Altus.”

Willis Granite Monument also donated other pieces of rock as decor in from front of the Municipal Complex. Rent City of Altus donated and operated the forklift used in the installation.
