Visitor Tips and News About Paul Bunyan Statue
I was living in Portland for a few months and stumbled across this great Paul Bunyan in the Killingsworth district of Portland. He sits on a corner that is busy with traffic and train.[Kristen Grinnell, 05/07/2006]
He's a rare, semi-urban woodsman we've visited before. Not a Muffler Man, but an impressive ax wielder nonetheless. Stands across the street from George's Dancing Bare Exotic Lounge.
This Paul Bunyan Statue, 35 feet tall, was erected in 1959 to greet visitors to the Oregon Centennial Exposition. He stands at the fork of a busy street in the Kenton neighborhood, a rare semi-urban Bunyan, adjacent to the Dancing Bare Gentlemens Club.
He is reported to be maintained these days by the Kenton Neighborhood Association and some local Boy Scouts.[Roadsideamerica.com Team, 06/16/2002]
February 2009: Paul has just been added to the National Register of Historic Places as a "well-crafted example of roadside architecture."
