Do you know the story behind the two lion statues at the east entrance to the James H. McBride Arboretum? They were carved by hand from Berea Limestone and were completed in 1894! They traveled for a long time before finding their home at BGSU Firelands. Today they gaze across the courtyard at Foundation Hall, where Charles Frohman on Sept. 18, 1968, relayed the story of The Firelands to some of the very first students to attend the college. Frohman’s family owned the statues back in the 1930’s.
