Robertson Stadium, located on the main campus of the University of Houston, is to be eventually demolished, making way for a bigger newer stadium. Originally opened in 1942, not only did the stadium host Cougar football and soccer games, it recently hosted home games for the MSL’s Houston Dynamo (before their new stadium recently opened) and was the original home for the Houston Oilers in the early 1960s prior to the Astrodome’s existence.

If you recognize the sculptor’s name, it’s might be because we was also involved with a little project call Mount Rushmore.
While not as large a project, “Peggy” still weighs 28 tons and the bronze and white granite sculpture now proudly resides in MacGregor Park.
