An iconic sculpture in the Ohio Valley is getting a new home.

The 'Steelworker' sculpture currently located on University Boulevard and State Route 7 will be moving to the library of Steubenville and Jefferson County due to a $10,000 grant.

The library was awarded the funding by PNC Charitable Trust and JC Williams Trust. The 7,500-pound life-size artwork will rest on the grounds across the street from the main library on South Fourth Street which overlooks the former Steubenville steel mill plant and administrative offices.

Library Director Alan Hall said the statue will be moved by the end of October.
