HISTORY IN BRONZE

SALLIE CHISUM
 

The niece of famed cattleman John Chisum, Sallie Chisum settled in Artesia in 1890, where her ambition and fierce independence led her into many endeavors. Her accomplishments as an entrepreneur, developer and businesswoman led her to be known posthumously as the First Lady of Artesia.    The monument, created by Robert Summers, was unveiled and dedicated to the spirit of the pioneer woman in July 2003.
