SAN ANTONIO (Texas News Radio) — Dallas’ Robert E. Lee statue now has a new home: a golf course near the U.S.-Mexico border.
The City of Dallas removed the statue from a city park two years ago and sold it at an auction in June. It was sold to Addison attorney Ronald Holmes.
As part of the sale, the buyer could not place it in a place that could be viewed by the public within Dallas city limits.
KTVT-TV reports Holmes donated the statue to Black Jack’s Crossing at Lajitas Golf Course near Big Bend National Park.
The television station statue was installed on a putting green at the course Monday. The resort said it could not be more proud to have the statue.
