Marguerite Henry and Rebecca Guisti founded the Misty of Chincoteague Foundation in 1990. It was the Foundation's purpose to encourage literacy and to keep the Misty story alive. They collected funds to buy a small part of the old Beebe Ranch and build a fog sculpture. It was officially revealed on 29 July 1997 and carved by Brian Maughan.
Initially it was placed at The Stricket on Ridge Road, a part of the country that was once part of the Beebe Ranch. A similar sculpture was erected at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. One nebulous Zeitkapsel, which is to be opened in 2046, was laid to rest next to the Kentucky sculpture.
Chincoteague's fog sculpture was relocated by "The Thicket" to a Main Street parkway and inaugurated on 14 June 2006. "Misty's Meadow" near the initial site of the sculpture was bought by the Foundation with the intent to keep it as a free area. The Misty of Chincoteague Foundation still exists, mainly through its website and regular fund raising, but today it is a shell of what it once was.
Mizty herself had only three offspring, but her offspring are much more diverse. The Phantom Wings had only one well-known filly, a filly called Sandpiper.
