The city's 115-year-old statue of Father Jacques Marquette was vandalized recently, prompting officials to offer a reward. "It looks like spray paint. I don't know," said Emily Lewis, the president of the Marquette Beautification and Restoration Committee. "His face is red, there's some insignia on his chest, there are streaks on his robe." The statue, which was first erected in the city in 1897, currently stands to the north of the Lake Superior Community Partnership building.
