Pete the Pig Monument stands on main street in White Cloud, Kansas. In 1910, ten-year old Wilbur Chapman sold a prized pig to raise money for a leper colony. Coin savings banks were created in the shape of pigs, manufactured, and sold, resulting in the origination of the “Piggy Bank” as we know it today.
