Big Logger Twins

The Big Logger Twins are still out at the Jackson County Fair Grounds in Central Point, Oregon right along I-5 just north of Medford. They are just huge and fun, perfect examples of Roadside America. The 7/18/09 Medford Mail Tribune had a column on the twins with some background.

"The 37 foot tall tin loggers, which were once used to advertise a now-defunct heavy equipment sales firm along Highway 99 near the Sage Road intersection in the 1940s, were moved to their present site at the Expo early in July 1994. The Bunyan Brothers were placed there as a symbol of the timber industry by the Eugene F. Burrill Lumber Co. of White City, the last independently owned lumber mill in Jackson Count. It closed in 1998"

This is in regards to the supposed muffler man sighting in Medford Oregon. The big fellas in question (there's two, not one), are quite old and much taller than muffler men. They are about 50 feet tall and stand side by side with a superstructure behind them to hold them up.

They used to be located near a "wigwam" burner for a mill, but were moved, then recently popped back up in their present location. My father, who is 70, remembers them from when he was a young man. They are actually around back of the main Expo entrance where rodeo folks and horse riders enter to get at holding and riding corrals.

It is a red shirted and, I believe, red knit capped logger just outside of Medford Oregon. Medford is probably the biggest town in southern Oregon and about the third largest town in Oregon if that helps at all. I have lived here my whole life and have always seen him.
