The mystery story behind our beloved Fewell Monument Bird has always piqued people’s minds. Several people around here say it’s a chicken. But atlas, it’s a bird no matter what. Terry Fewell came up with the idea of having a bird set on the corner of our building. He wanted to raise eyebrows and curiosity to our company. He coined the inscription of “Your Imagination, Our ability” The bird was bought at the MBNA convention in the year of 1998.
During the holiday season, it was adorned with antlers, a red nose, and garland draped around it. At a time of grief, it wore a beautiful garland wreath to commemorate Terry Fewell’s passing. The bird is also widely known as the town’s marker for directions as well.
If Fewell Monument will ever get an opportunity to have a company baseball team, we will most definitely use this bird as our mascot!
Work is underway at the new Fewell Monument plant at Scottsburg, IN! We are thrilled that we’re getting a lot more space, resources, and a better floor plan. Right now we’re housed separately as an office and production floor. This great opportunity will make us better as a whole company in one big location.
