Paul Bunyan Statue - Review

Bangor claims to the Birthplace of Paul Bunyan. A titan of a statue in the city reminds Bangorians of their connection to this legendary character.

Maine certainly has a lot of trees all around. That is why it is really nice to see the hulking woodsman here. Bangor's Paul Bunyan, is "Reputed to be the largest statue of Paul Bunyan in the world" according to its sign. It stands on a stone pedestal in front of the Bangor Civic Center. The statue is 31 feet high and weighs 3,700 pounds. This is excluding its double-sided ax and peavey.

The statue was donated to Bangor in 1959 by New York-based builders Messmoor and Damon. The occasion was Bangor's 125th anniversary. It was designed by local artist J. Norman Martin. He was reportedly paid $137 for his efforts.

Paul has been outfitted with a giant fez (for a Shriners convention) and a huge bandana (for a Willie Nelson concert) over the years. He is thoughtfully put into the park so that shutterbugs can get all of him into their photos without having to disrupt activities in the middle of Main Street!

  • Very cool statue located in core of Bangor, ME. My kids knew this chap so it was exciting for them to see as well. We didn't get out of our car due to time restraints, but it would have been nice to get up close and have a few pictures taken. Definitely worth the time to check this out.

  • It's a big statue. It is. And if you're a Stephen King fan, stop by and take a picture. :)

  • Colossal lumberjack (Paul Bunyan) statue. The nearby restraunt is appropriately named Timber.

  • Paul Bunyan holds a special place in my heart, as grade school children we used to come from several hours away to see the Paul Bunyan statue. It was on that field trip that we were educated about who Paul Bunyan was , and why he was made into a Statue..There are two other states that claim Paul Bunyan is from their State however The Maniacs no he is from Maine he's right down the road standing right there Big & Tall !!! Well worth a visit...

  • Big statue, no info on why it's there. Take picture and go
