Max Heller statue stands in Legacy Plaza

The Mayor Max Heller Sculpture in Legacy Plaza — a bronze sculpture that captures the energy and affability of Heller, was dedicated May 28, 2009, on a day set aside to honor the man who decades ago wanted his adopted hometown to become more than nature had in store for it. The dedication of the statue — forced by threatening weather from Legacy Plaza to the Hyatt Regency hotel — was an emotional tribute for those who already knew Heller's life story and his personal contributions, and a needed history lesson for others.
