PIERRE (AP) -- The first three statues for the Trail of Governors project have been unveiled.

The bronze, life-sized statues of former Govs. Arthur C. Mellette, Harlan J. Bushfield and Walter D. Miller were unveiled Thursday in the Capitol Rotunda.

Former Gov. Miller and family members of former Govs. Bushfield and Miller were on hand for the ceremony. Miller says sculptors Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby did a good job capturing his physical features. Each statue costs $68,000.
