PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon city is embarking on a project to bring its historical bronze statues to life.

The East Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1NDxYAX ) that the Pendleton City Council has approved funding for the Pendleton Bronze Trail, a self-guided historical tour of 15 statues.

Carlton-based advertising firm Duke Joseph Agency will develop a mobile website for the project and host if for the first year. Duke Joseph says the website will feature an interactive map with GPS and walking directions. Each statue will have its own page with photographs, a summary of the person and their exploits and an audio narrative using voice actors playing the historical figure.

The city divided the $5,375 cost of developing and establishing the trail between the urban renewal district and the city’s art fund.
