The cowboy was designed and built by my grandfather, John Sutton. It was originally planned as part of a theme park that never materialized.

[Siobhan Burtlow, 01/09/2013]

The 25-foot-tall cowboy has stood in this spot for over 50 years.

The Cowboy.

Concrete Cowboy

As a boy, my family (and extended family) lived in the trailer park with the cowboy out front. There were my parents, my two older sisters, my older brother, and my younger brother, living in a 28 foot trailer. That was sometime between 1954 and 1956. Dad was a sheet metal worker and we traveled all over the place seeking work. I was young, born in 1950, and I loved the cowboy. Glad to hear it is still standing.

Concrete cowboy now stands alone at the entrance to the trailer park. The building that once stood at his feet has been razed, and the partner oversees Federal Boulevard all alone.

Denver's Concrete Cowboy was still in good shape in June 2010. You will note that the building behind him has been demolished since the earlier photos were taken. The location is Federal Blvd (US 287), one block south of Interstate 76.
