The bronze bust of Dr. John A. McLoughlin was sculpted by American artist Adrian Alexander Voisin who completed it in 1933 at a cost of $2,000. The bust was mounted on a natural stone block placed between the Pacific highway (US99E) and Willamette Falls overlook. It was dedicated on June 8, 1941.

Heavy corrosion caused by chemical emission from the papermills along the river has give the normally green patina of oxidized bronze added layer of black and brown.
