Madonna of the Trail Statue Vandalized

Posted: Updated:

The Madonna of the Trail statue in Wheeling was vandalized overnight Monday.

Police found two cement flower pots on either side of the statue broken, and laying in pieces around the Madonna. The Wheeling Park Commission was notified early Monday morning, and the city manager's office was also contacted.

The statue, which sits along the entrance to Wheeling Park along National Road, was just rededicated this past July. $30,000 of cleaning and repairs were done to the statue before the incident on Monday night.
