Visitor Tips and News About Tall Texan Statue
Tall Texan is not looking well. More & more of his body, arm, & face are losing pieces. He may not be around much longer. The mini-mart next door has closed and is vacant.[Dennis, 05/30/2014]
We were heading to Louisiana's highest mountain (Mount Driskill, 535 feet high; it's really just a hill) when we came across the Tall Texan. We figured he was as lost as we were in Louisiana.[Ralph, 10/18/2013]
I found a 10- to 12-foot fiberglass cowboy with a Texas belt buckle beside a closed gas station in Louisiana. He is in kinda bad shape. His left arm is a bit rotted and his chest is starting to crack.[Robert McManus, 06/04/2012]
Poor Tex. Looks like he hasn't fared well over the years...
I call him the Tall Texan. I'm not sure what he is actually called, but when I was working the Ruston, LA region I ran across this and thought it was cool. Never gave it any more thought till I was browsing your site and stumbled up on some resemblance and thought I would add to it.[Kim, 07/04/2007]
